Confidence in nuclear power still strong

A survey by Cardiff University released this week reveals public confidence in nuclear power is still strong despite the Fukushima disaster in Japan.

The survey revealed that 54% of the population in 2010 were fairly or very concerned about nuclear power, but this dropped to 47% this year, despite the problems at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan.

According to the survey 37% of the UK population support the use of nuclear power for producing energy in the UK, but the support is split between men and women.

The survey revealed 53% of men are in favour of nuclear power but just 21% of women.
