Protesters at nuclear power plant

The protesters chained themselves across the road

Anti-nuclear campaigners have chained themselves together to try to block the only access to Sizewell nuclear power station in Suffolk.

The eight activists said the latest protest was to highlight "health and safety issues".

Four of the group are dressed as health and safety inspectors.

Mell Harrison, from the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, said they were protesting at the environmental impact of nuclear reactors and uranium mining.
