Sizewell B nuclear power station shutdown over

Sizewell B nuclear power station is generating electricity again after a three day automatic shutdown.

Owner EDF Energy said the plant resumed operation at 02:10 BST on Saturday, having stopped on Wednesday afternoon.

The company said the automatic safety systems were triggered when an electrical unit was reconnected following routine maintenance work.

EDF said the plant responded as expected and at no time was anyone put at risk.
