An article by the Sunday Times last week has suggested that plans to build a Chinese atomic reactor in Britain are reaching the final stages. Hinkley Point near Bridgwater in Somerset already has two plants and plans for a new development are to receive backing from a combination of French nuclear leaders EDF Energy, China General Nuclear Power Corporation and China National Nuclear Corporation. Negotiations are due to continue with expectations for the plans to be given the go ahead in the near future.
