Dan Sales, Burnham & Highbridge Weekly News, 23rd March 2006

A BURNHAM meeting has been told that nuclear power would do little to help climate change.

Last week the Princess Hall was the venue for a discussion on the possibility of more power stations being commissioned in the country.

Parents Concerned About Hinkley, Families for Clean Energy and Stop Hinkley organised the gathering, which featured talks from green campaigner Dr Richard Lawson and wind-energy journalist Crispin Aubrey.

Jim Duffy, spokesman for Stop Hinkley, said: "There is an urgency to move on climate change but nuclear is the wrong answer.

"We can reduce harmful emissions more economically with existing technologies and the political will.

"I urge Burnham residents to write to the Government in its energy consultation."
