Nuclear power plant stays closed

02 June 2007, BBC News 24

Oldbury Power Station in South Gloucestershire is not expected to reopen in the foreseeable future, a British Nuclear Group spokesman said.

An inquiry has been set up to look into the overheating at the plant, which led to the fire in an electricity transformer on 30 May.

No-one was injured in the fire, but the facility cannot return to normal until the inquiry reports.

The fire broke out on the non-nuclear side of the plant.
