Campaigners from Wales have joined hundreds of others in Somerset as part of a weekend of demonstrations against a planned nuclear power station.

Symbolic barrels of radioactive waste were wheeled through the streets of nearby Bridgwater to highlight the stockpile of high-level nuclear waste that would be stored at Hinkley C if it gets the green light.

The planned site is just 14 miles across the Bristol channel from the Welsh coast.
