Britain's first new nuclear power plant in decades could be delayed amid reports an EDF board meeting to decide whether to invest in Hinkley Point Power Station has been postponed.

According to foreign reports, the French energy firm's board was expected to meet on Wednesday to finalize the decision. But French paper Les Echos and environmental group Greenpeace said the decision had now been delayed reportedly due to funding difficulties.

EDF declined to comment on the reports.

In October, EDF agreed a deal under which China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) would pay a third of the cost of the £18bn project in exchange for a 33.5% stake.
