Politicians should start being honest with the public about what needs to be done to keep our lights on, following the belated decision to give Hinkley Point C the final go-ahead, said Prospect.
The BBC’s Panorama programme on Sellafield presents the public with a partial and sensationalised view of safety at a site that is a vital part of ensuring Britain’s energy security and low-carbon transition.

Prospect has welcomed the Final Investment Decision that will pave the way for the construction of Hinkley Point C.
Prospect, the largest union for professionals, managers and specialists in EDF and the wider UK energy sector, is calling for a Final Investment Decision to be taken on the building of Hinkley Point C when EDF’s board meets later today.
