Carwyn Jones calls for Tidal Lagoon to get same UK Government deal as Hinkley

Carwyn Jones has made a last ditch bid to save the Swansea Tidal Lagoon project, which the UK Government is expected to reject this week. It includes putting a figure -£200 million- on the "substantial investment" by the Welsh Government that he'd previously offered.

The First Minister has followed up a telephone call to Energy Secretary Greg Clark with a letter which he's made public.

In response to Carwyn Jones letter, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy explained it was considering Charles Hendry's independent review into the lagoon.

Swansea East MP Carolyn Harris has told the Sharp End programme that she's expecting a 'negative' decision and that she's 'fuming.'

She's also said that if the speculation proves to be true, the Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns should 'consider his position.'
