Steam leak limits British reactor

The Norfolk Eastern Daily Press reported this morning:

Investigative work is continuing at a nuclear power station after one of its two turbines had to be taken offline.

Sizewell B is currently operating at half power.

EDF Energy, which owns the station, took the decision to bring turbine generator two offline on Wednesday after a steam leak was discovered.
