I think nuclear energy is essential for powering the UK, now and in the future.
But the country's nuclear power plants are reaching the end of their intended life, and this is causing problems. Hunterston B power plant is developing cracks in its core. They don't pose any danger yet, but they indicate the reactor will have to be shut down sooner than its operator had hoped.
I hope we get new nuclear power plants soon - before the current batch become unsafe.
