Sizewell nuclear vigil report

26.4.09: Protesters gathered at a generating station in Suffolk to mark 20 years since the Chernobyl disaster have held a vigil against nuclear power.

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), which organised a "peaceful" overnight protest at Sizewell said it wanted to highlight the dangers.

The Government said new nuclear power stations could be built at 11 sites in England including Sizewell.

The group has been joined by a number of clergymen who are leading the vigil.

A spokeswoman said the protesters were angry about plans for new reactors on the site.

In the early hours of April 26 1986, one of four nuclear reactors at a power station at Chernobyl, Ukraine, exploded in the world's worst nuclear accident.
