The Welsh Government refused to comment on a Sunday Times report that it wanted to take on a caretaker role until a developer was found. A spokesman said it continued to discuss potential ways forward. A new Wylfa power station had been planned on a site next to the old power plant on Anglesey. Senior Welsh Government sources told BBC Wales that ministers and officials were “exploring all the available options” because they wanted to “support a developer to make Wylfa a reality”. One said: “We’re not in a position to say we’re going to take over the site but we’re continuing discussions with Horizon and other partners. “We’re exploring all the options but it’s too early to be saying anything.”
