Britain to go ahead with 'most expensive object on earth'

British PM Theresa May on Wednesday has vowed to build the Hinkley nuclear plant. The plant will mostly be financed by French state-owned firm EDF. The UK government estimates costs at €21 billion, while environmental watchdog Greenpeace estimates €28 billion. Greenpeace claims it will be the "most expensive object on earth". Austria lodged a complaint against the plant with the ECJ in 2015, because it could violate state aid rules.
