Fire crews have been rushed to a nuclear reactor in northern France after an escape of smoke but the energy company EDF says the site is secure.

Ten fire engines were sent to the Penly site near Dieppe, where the reactor was shut down after the alarm was raised at 12:20 (11:20 GMT).

Nobody was hurt, the firm said, and the incident had "no consequences for the environment".

Two small fires had broken out but were later extinguished, the firm said.
