The Sizewell C nuclear power project has been given a boost today after the Government pledged £100m to help get things going.
French energy giant EDF is trying to attract investors to the £20bn project, so ministers hope the cash boost will drum up further support.
The planned power station forms a key part of the UK’s push towards green sources of energy.
However, some investors are nervous about nuclear power, while there’s controversy over the role of Chinese group CGN in the project.
