The nuclear power station Sizewell B is set to continue operating for at least another 10 years, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said on Thursday.

Following an inspection of the power station, which started operating in 1995, the HSE said Sizewell B could continue to operate safely.

All nuclear facilities have to have safety reviews every 10 years.

The HSE said it will continue to monitor health and safety at the power plants over the next 10 years.
