ITV West Country: Hinkley nuclear blockade

Demonstrators have been blocking the main access road to Hinkley Point power station in Somerset to highlight their opposition to plans for two new super reactors.

The power station's owners EDF have applied for planning permission to build on the site, which is one of the locations proposed by the Government.

EDF brought in staff early to try to ensure the blockade had little effect on their running of the site. Our Somerset correspondent was at Hinkley as the protesters arrived at first light.
