A nature reserve says it is worried for the future of its wildlife if a new nuclear power station goes ahead. RSPB Minsmere in Suffolk, which neighbours the proposed Sizewell C plant, said it was concerned EDF energy may not be able to keep environmental promises. EDF has said it takes environmental responsibility “seriously”. Plans for Sizewell C are due before the government’s Planning Inspectorate later this year. Minsmere reserve provides reedbed, wet grassland and heath habitats for a variety of wildlife including marsh harriers, otters, water voles and bearded tits.
