£1bn Pembroke Power Station faces EU permits probe


The European Commission has launched an investigation into the UK government's approval of a £1bn gas-fired power station in Pembrokeshire.

Pembroke Power Station, the largest of its type in Europe, opened last month and will power 3.5m homes.

Following a complaint by Friends of the Earth, the Department of Energy and Climate Change has been told to clarify the impact on Cleddau estuary water.

The government said it was currently considering its response.
