About 500 people have attended a protest against proposed sea defences for a nuclear power plant. Organisers of the Stop Sizewell C campaign formed a “human wall” marking out where they see new sea defences impacting the coastline. The electricity plant would be built next to the existing Sizewell B reactor in Suffolk by EDF Energy. Campaigner Alison Downes said: “If Sizewell C were to go ahead this much loved beach could change forever.” On its website, EDF Energy said: “Our sea defence plans are strictly regulated by East Suffolk Council, the Environment Agency and the Office for Nuclear regulation.” Hundreds lined up to show the position of the proposed wall which will be built out of rocks. EDF Energy says it would all be landscaped, like the existing sea defences and will not stop people using the beach.
