Selby MP Says Energy Minister is "Problem" in Fight to Save Eggborough Power Jobs

Selby's MP has attacked the Lib Dem Energy Minister Ed Davey, saying he is the "problem" and the "stumbling block" in the fight to save 800 jobs at Eggborough power station.

Eggborough narrowly missed out on government funding last year to convert from coal to wood burning for electricity.

While Conservative Nigel Adams says the Prime Minister and Chancellor are sympathetic, he says Lib Dems in government are stopping action being taken.

When on a visit to York earlier this month, Minster FM asked Lib Dem leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, what could be done to help save Eggborough power stations.

We asked Nigel Adams if he felt Nick Clegg's response gave him hope.
