Stop Hinkley steps up campaign

Stop Hinkley has appointed a high-flying new campaigner in response to EdF's plans to build two nuclear reactors at Hinkley Point.

David is part of an expanding team of Stop Hinkley campaigners which includes a former physics teacher at East Bridgwater community school and a former Bath Friends of the Earth campaigner.

Alan Jeffery from Blacklands in Bridgwater and Richard Carder in Bath both gave evidence in the previous Hinkley C inquiry held in 1988-89 and have followed the sudden revival of nuclear power with a sceptical interest.
