Hinkley Point Delay: 400 Jobs At Risk

‘Up to 400 workers at the site of the new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point face being laid off while the owners decide how much more to invest in the £16bn project. The French company EDF Energy has almost completed the preparatory earthworks, drainage, support facilities and roadworks on the multibillion-pound project in Somerset but is yet to decide on investment to mark the beginning of the construction of the plant. While awaiting a decision ~ expected “in the coming months” — the company had launched a 45‘day consultation for redundancies, union officials said.’
