Toshiba launches a probe into potential misconduct following the fallout of their US nuclear deal.
Toshiba has launched a probe into potential misconduct following the fallout of their US nuclear deal. Analysts say they vastly overpaid for Westinghouse, which they bought in 2006. Shares have tumbled 10% after the electronics conglomerate said it would book a $6.3 billion hit. In the UK, the company building a new nuclear plant in Cumbria has given assurances the project will go ahead, despite Toshiba owning a 60% stake. Share radio's james Brydges spoke to Seijiro Takeshita, Professor of Management and Information, from the University of Shizuoka. He told us this was the latest in the long line of setbacks for Toshiba

Companies vying to build nuclear power stations told to cut electricity prices
Companies vying to build nuclear power stations in the UK have been told they must offer lower electricity prices than that approved for the Hinkley Point plant last year. Government officials have indicated that future projects will be expected to deliver a discount of at least 15-20% on the price of electricity from the £18bn Hinkley plant in Somerset - a settlement widely criticised for its high cost. To discuss this further, Dr Jenifer Baxter, Head of Energy and Environment at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast.
