Swansea tidal lagoon: 'Disgrace' if project not backed

An MP has urged the UK government not to "pull the plug" on plans for a £1bn tidal power project in Swansea.

Swansea West MP Geraint Davies said it was vital for a "greener future", and accused ministers of "back-pedalling" on their commitment to the lagoon.

The company behind the scheme warned in October that building work was being delayed by a year to 2017.

Tidal Lagoon Power and the UK government have both said negotiations were continuing over an agreed price for the energy generated.
