The story 'Conference to look at alternatives to proposed barrage across Severn' caught my eye (here) given that I've followed and posted on the barrage issue quite often (here).
It would help if my local paper The Post named some of the alternatives to a barrage given that the headline says 'look at alternatives'. Some alternatives to a barrage are: tidal lagoons; tidal stream turbines and tidal reef systems (pictured). If the public are going to form an informed opinion about a barrage vs alternatives they need more information in general - and in particular more information about the alternatives!
