EDF has confirmed that three of its nuclear reactors are back in service after shutting down because of unrelated electrical issues.
Last week only 10 of its 15 reactors were in normal operation. In addition to the three with electrical problems, two were on planned maintenance outages. EDF said there was no impact on the National Grid.
