Nuclear power plant closed again

BBC on-line news/ Breakfast News 13th July 2007

A nuclear power station has only been open for a total of eight days since August, it has been revealed.

Oldbury Power Station in South Gloucestershire recently closed for an undisclosed reason, three days after reopening at the end of June.

It was also closed at the end of May after a fire at the plant.

Plant manager Pete Harper said: "Our number one priority is safety. We wouldn't run this plant if it wasn't safe to do so."

He added that the plant would only be brought back on line when it was safe to do so.

Oldbury is due to stop generating electricity at the end of 2008.
