Wylfa: End of an era for Anglesey

Wylfa nuclear power station on Anglesey will shutdown for good on 30 December, it has been announced.

It will bring an end to 44 years of generating electricity on the island.

The decision will see about 150 of its 500 remaining staff lose their jobs by April, before full decommissioning gets under way.

Wylfa's operator Magnox said the site will enter a 100-day "cool down" period, before the process of removing nuclear fuel at the site begins.

Site director Stuart Law said the entire workforce remained immensely proud of Wylfa's record.
