  2. Nuclear power station decision stalls again

    A decision on whether a new nuclear power station can be built on Anglesey has been delayed until later in the year.

    UK Business Secretary Alok Sharma was due to make a decision on the application for Wylfa Newydd by yesterday, but that deadline has been moved to 30 September, after being initially due last October.

    The application is still being considered by the UK government, even though the developer behind the proposals, Horizon Nuclear Power, suspended work on the project in January 2019.

    A statement from the Planning Inspectorate said more time was required to allow the minister to "complete his consideration in respect of environmental effects and other issues"
