Call to suspend all contractor work at Hinkley new nuclear site, because of Covid19

NFLA 26th March 2020, The Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) calls today for the suspension of all work by contractors of EDF Energy at the Hinkley Point C proposed new nuclear reactor site, due to the concerns of an infection spread from the public health emergency sparked by the covid-19 outbreak.
Earlier this week, the UK Government called on the general population to observe social distancing rules amidst a tight ‘lockdown’ of all but essential services. This has led to millions of people now working from home and
sadly considerable amounts of people losing their employment – though the
government is seeking to provide most of them with 80% of their current
income.
