Anglesey underground cables 'well worth' extra cost

Controversial overhead power lines across Anglesey are the preferred option for the planned £8bn Wylfa Newydd nuclear station.

But National Grid (NG) has ruled out pylons for an area of outstanding natural beauty with cables set to run underground and under the Menai Strait.

The route will broadly follow the path of existing pylons.

NG said many will be disappointed cables would not run all the way under the sea.

One of them is farmer Will Edwards, from Rhosgoch, who says it will damage tourism and agriculture.
