An edited version of the following letter was published in the Telegraph on 3/9/14

Dear Editor,

Now that the proposal to build an airport in the Thames Estuary has been dropped, well almost dropped, why not build a 5 GWe nuclear power station there? London needs electricity and it would make much more sense to generate it there than a 100 miles away on the Suffolk coast. It would give a more secure supply and virtually eliminate transmission losses. No safety worries, EDF  and the ONR are planning to reduce the emergency zone round Sizewell B to a couple of hundred yards and not have any building restrictions in the area beyond. So if its safe there it would be safe for London

Yours sincerely

Barrie Skelcher,

Leiston
