Steve Webb MP: Power station scrapping 'good news'

Steve Webb, Liberal Democrat MP for Thornbury and Yate, speaks to the BBC's John Darvall about the announcement by RWE Npower and E.On that they will not develop new nuclear power projects in the UK.

The two were planning to invest in new plants in Anglesey and Oldbury, in Mr Webb's constituency in South Gloucestershire, under a joint venture called Horizon Nuclear Power.

Mr Webb said he thought the announcement was "very good news".
