The week concludes with a special hearing focusing on issues surrounding the Combwich area on August 24.

An online commentator wrote "The Mystery of the Midsummer Night Caravan Visit". A mismatched couple returned from a short motorbike ride and vanished into an old caravan together while the party continued nearby. What went on in that caravan?. Were they perhaps discussing Hinkley Point C in extreme privacy?. Only they know.
