A DROP-IN event is taking place at Bridgwater town hall today where people can learn about three proposed environmental permits, including one for the disposal of radioactive waste from Hinkley C.

The other two permits sought by EDF Energy concern discharging liquid into the Bristol Channel, and using diesel generators as a standby power source.

Today's drop-in event began this morning and runs until 7pm.

As part of a 13-week consultation, further events will be held at Stogursey Victory Hall next Tuesday (September 18), Bridgwater College's Cannington Centre next Wednesday, and Otterhampton village hall next Thursday, all from 10am-7pm.
