More than 300 North Somerset businesses have show interest in working on Hinkley Point C.

The £18billion nuclear project received a boost in October after an agreement was signed between EDF Energy and its Chinese partner.

Around 370 North Somerset companies have now registered an interest on working on Hinkley, near Bridgwater.

Somerset County Council predicts Hinkley C will provide around 25,000 jobs during its construction, and 900 jobs in its 60-year operating life.
