EDF Energy, the biggest nuclear power provider in Britain, permanently switched off the second reactor at Hinkley Point B in Somerset on Monday, the company said on its website.

The reactor will soon start the defueling and decommissioning process. Hinkley Point B began producing electricity for the UK grid in 1976.
