Wylfa Newydd developer Horizon Nuclear Power has hit back at criticism of a “lack of ambition” in their estimates for the number of local people that will join the workforce.

This came under fire from Anglesey council who believe they should be aiming higher. But Horizon have responded, saying the 45% figure is not a target and that they hoped to replicate the success of Wylfa A – where more than 80% of workers are from the region.
