BOSSES at EDF Energy have served a legal notice to evict anti-nuclear protestors who have been camped on the site of the proposed Hinkley Point C nuclear power station for more than a week.

A small group of campaigners set up camp in an old farm building at the site on Sunday, February 12, and have reportedly refused requests to leave the site, which is owned by EDF.

The group is angry that EDF has been allowed to start preparatory work for the new power station despite planning permission for the facility not yet being granted. The works were approved by West Somerset Council last year.
