Hinkley Point nuclear business 'benefit' for Wales

Businesses in Wales can benefit from the building of a nuclear power plant in Somerset, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has said.

But there are concerns it could make the shortage of skilled workers for construction projects worse.

Hinkley Point C will cost £18bn, with a third of it being paid by China, and will create 25,000 jobs.

The Federation of Master Builders, which represents small contractors, is also worried many of its members will not even tender for business there because of how long it takes to get paid for these jobs.

BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan reports.
