Nuclear Protest Causes Victoria Delays

Protestors have caused delays in Victoria as they block Grosvenor Place to campaign over nuclear energy.

The group - Boycott EDF Energy - set up outside energy firm EDF's headquarters, with signs including a banner saying "nuclear disaster area". Bella Benson from the group told LBC they had tried democratic channels but "all the doors have been closed".

"We do apologise sincerly to everybody who has been disrupted by our actions today. The truth is that no-one will listen to us. Everybody has bought the line that we have to keep the lights on and nuclear energy is the only way to do this - it's absolutely not true," she added.
