Environmental action group Extinction Rebellion has held a protest on the beach at Sizewell against the planned expansion of the nuclear power station.
The protest took place on Sunday August 9 and Extinction Rebellion East of England spokesperson Rachel Smith-Lyte said 15 members had taken part in the action.
“There were some members of the public on the beach who saw what we were doing and some of them were genuinely interested in what we were doing and why.”
“We felt we had to do something to engage wider public debate on this important issue – so especially crucial for this sensitive special area,” she said.
“It’s fair to say we feel that not enough people realise the serious implications this construction would have on both people and wildlife.
