Nuclear Safety Campaigners were joined today by Anti Fracking Campaigners to launch a New report into the environmental impacts of the Cumbrian New Nuclear Build, Moorside proposal. A ‘pop up’ protest outside Springfields Westinghouse site, Near Preston, was the scene for delivering the report to Moorside’s planned nuclear fuel manufacturing site ( five miles from the Preston New Road frack site). Springfields, owned by the British Government but run by the financially troubled Toshiba Westinghouse, is gearing up to manufacture “high burn” fuel for Moorside. The new report paid for by crowdfunding which was organised by Radiation Free Lakeland was delivered to Nick Jones, Westinghouse’s Marketing and Communications Manager along with a covering letter. The report contains findings including over 200 deaths predicted from routine operation of the proposed AP1000 nuclear reactors in Cumbria. The “high burn” fuel would be made by Westinghouse at Springfields, Salwick, Preston.
