In video: National Grid explains why pylons will be used for power route

Campaigners in the Burnham-On-Sea area say they are disappointed that National Grid has announced that it will not bury its 37-mile power connection running between Hinkley Point and Avonmouth.

National Grid has announced the draft route for the controversial 400,000 volt power connection. A five-mile section of the route will go underground in the Mendip Hills, but the new line will use overhead pylons when it goes through the Burnham area.
