British Energy is considering constructing 10 new nuclear power plants from 2011, at a cost of £10bn. Potential sites include Hunterston and Torness in Scotland, Sizewell in Suffolk, Bradwell and Dungeness in the South East and Hinkley Point in Somerset.

The Government is looking urgently at alternatives to Picketts Lock in London as a venue for the 2005 World Athletics Championships. This is because of a recent assessment that claimed the construction of the new stadium would cost £110M - almost double the original estimates made in 2000.

John Charlton, chief financial officer of Kvaerner, has resigned.

Chief executive Kjell Almslog also recently quit as chief executive.
