World's oldest nuclear plant shuts in Britain

OLDBURY-ON-SEVERN, Britain - The world's oldest running nuclear reactor is due to shut at 11:00 a.m. GMT on Wednesday after 44 years of operation, starting the countdown to 2025, by when a new British nuclear station is expected to open on a site just a few hundred meters away.
Some local residents who have lived in this quaint village for decades say they had no choice when the plant was first built in the 1960s and have little prospect of preventing a new station now, given that the Oldbury site has already been shortlisted for new nuclear plants by the government.
