Hinkley C plans outlined to public

Proposals for the new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station have been put on show in Somerset.

A series of public consultations begin on Saturday at the village hall, in Cannington, near Bridgwater.

Simon Dunford, the plant's project manager, said the events were about presenting the public with options.

"These could be, do we - possibly - build a bypass on one side of a town or where should we site accommodation units?" he said.

Mr Dunford also said the plans would address what the "legacy benefits" of the building process would be for the local community.

The energy company EDF won the go-ahead to construct the new power station a fortnight ago.
