The existing Wylfa plant, which has been producing energy since 1971, is set to continue generating electricity until the fuel runs out or September 2014, whichever comes first.


That sounds a bit vague. Don't they know when the fuel will run out?

Anyway, no new nuclear plant will be opened in the UK. I may have mentioned that before.
