Drones fly over nuclear power plants

Drones fly over nuclear power plants

This happens in France. A drone flies over a nuclear power station. The drone does not do anything, but this is illegal. Drones must not get close to power stations. This happens seven times.

France investigates this. The country has 19 nuclear power stations. Most of its electricity comes from them. The drones worry some people.

Difficult words: nuclear power station (a building with machines which produce electricity by breaking the atom), illegal (you cannot do things which are illegal), investigate (try to find more information about something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
