Hartlepool Nuclear Power Station

Teesside's Nuclear Future
In 2007, British Energy told BBC Tees there was "Overwhelming Support" for second Nuclear Power Station in Hartlepool.
Why I'm against nuclear power.
British Energy may say they have plenty of support, but there is an active anti-nuclear lobby in the region.
The power station uses the River Tees to keep the nuclear reactor cool. Take a video tour and find out more.
Take our video tour and find out more about the Rolls Royce engines that make sure the power station never runs out of power.
Take a look at how staff working at the plant's reactor core make sure they are not contaminated when they leave.
BBC Tees got a look inside the heart of Hartlepool Nuclear Power Station. Take a video and photo tour of the reactor.
After the quantum physics has done its bit, it's down to old fashioned steam turbines to generate the power.
