Final fuel flask leaves nuclear power station

Staff at Oldbury power station have waved off the final nuclear fuel flask, four years after the station stopped generating energy.

It marks the end of de-fuelling at the station, near Bristol. Nearly 300 flasks have been removed since 2012 for reprocessing at Sellafield.

Decommissioning can now begin in earnest. BBC Points West's Steve Knibbs was there as staff saw flask E82m leave.
