Hinkley Point energy giant EDF has asked the Government to back its investment in the nuclear reactors it wants to build in the UK.

The French company argued its planned nuclear station in Somerset is one of Britain’s top five infrastructure projects and, as a result, could be eligible for a state-backed guarantee.

The Financial Times reported that talks between EDF and the Government were at an early stage and formal discussions could start after a fixed price for the nuclear power generated had been agreed.
