Fareham Borough Council approves UK-France power plans

A video has been released showing how linking the electricity transmission systems of Great Britain and France would work.

Fareham Borough Council received 1,134 objections to the proposed converter station and underground cables.

However, members voted in favour of the scheme, which forms part of the £500m Interconnector project known as IFA2.

National Grid said the project would secure energy supplies and help to reduce electricity costs.
