Concerns have been raised after more than 200,000 tonnes of ‘radioactive’ mud from Hinkley Point power station will be dumped in the Bristol Channel. EDF Energy, the company behind Hinkley Point C development in Bridgwater, has obtained a marine licence to dump up to 200,000 cubic metres of dredged material in the Bristol Channel – just a mile off Cardiff Bay. The dredging licence was granted to the French energy giant in 2013 and it gives them the right to discharge materials at Cardiff Grounds, a sandbank in the Bristol Channel.
