The killing industry doesn’t seem to observe national boundaries.
“Offline [nuclear] reactors could lead to a ‘tense situation’ for energy supply in France, in the event of a cold snap this winter.
The situation is likely to be exacerbated by damage during Storm Angus to the main cable that carries electricity back and forth between the UK and France.
