The government has switched money meant to support low carbon and renewable technologies to clean up the waste from Britain's nuclear power stations.

Spending figures show that at least one tranche of money - worth ?15m - that was meant to be used on "sustainable energy capital grants" has been switched to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, an agency established to oversee the clean-up of atomic waste.

Ministers have also plundered the defence budget as well as cash that should have been used for "regional selective assistance" to bolster an NDA struggling to cope with ?72bn decommissioning costs.
