Bridgwater MP Ian Liddell-Grainger is stepping up the fight against "eyesore" plyons linking Hinkley Point C with Avonmouth.

He was involved a debate in Parliament this week, led by fellow Tory MP Liam Fox, calling on National Grid to power the nuclear power plant with undergound cables instead of 37 miles of 46m-high pylons.

National Grid has put forward two potential routes, which it says are the only options available.

However, campaigners claim the development would be a blot on the landscape and lower house prices.

Mr Liddell-Grainger is urging people to contact him with their views.

He said: "There is no reason why this can't be done underground - these pylons are ugly.

"Myself, and fellow MPs will be raising this in the House of Commons again soon and I want to hear local people's views.

"It is important Bridgwater has its say."
