Update on Heysham 1 and Hartlepool nuclear power stations

Centrica notes the statement issued this morning by EDF Energy in connection with the findings from boiler spine inspections at Heysham 1 nuclear power station. Centrica has a 20% interest in EDF Energy's existing nuclear operations.

On this basis, the resulting reduction in output from the affected nuclear power stations is currently estimated to reduce Centrica's earnings per share in 2014 by around 0.3 pence per share.
