Drone footage shows off ‘huge impact’ Sizewell C could have on landscape. Campaigners fighting proposals for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast claim drone footage of Hinkley Point shows what a “massive, life-changing, countryside-destroying intrusion” Sizewell C would be. Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) says the film of work taking place on the £19.6billion project to build Britain’s first new nuclear plant for more than 20 years shows the dramatic scale and impact of the project. TASC chair Pete Wilkinson said: “The actual scale and impact of the proposed development at Sizewell has never been fully explained to the public and they have never been asked if they support it or oppose it. “It has always been disingenuously described by politicians as an inevitability which it is not: new nuclear is a choice not an imperative. We can and should say ‘no’ and be given the opportunity to tell our politicians that we reject this monstrous plan. “This footage gives us the evidence on which to base an informed view about the Sizewell development and shows the fate that awaits this area if EDF get their way. This two minute film does what EDF and the government have been unwilling to do for five years – to show us just how Sizewell C will utterly devastate a huge area of Suffolk on a scale that we cannot even think about tolerating.
