Scottish and Southern Energy announces it is pulling out of a deal to develop a new nuclear power station at Sellafield.

NuGen was considering building a new nuclear power facility near Sellafield, in West Cumbria.

SSE, which has never operated in the nuclear sector, said it wanted to focus on renewable green energy.

A statement released by the Perth-based company, which trades as Scottish Hydro, said it had concluded that, for the time being, its resources were better deployed on business activities and technologies where it has the greatest knowledge and experience.
