This shocking photo of uranium hexafluoride (UF6) containers was taken recently at the UKs Nuclear Fuel manufacturing plant (Springfields). It is on the fracking company, Cuadrilla’s, proposed HGV route to Roseacre Wood and just off Preston New Road.

The road transports of uranium hexaflouride and other nuclear materials here are ALREADY way too dangerous without adding Fracking HGVs into the mix.

Roseacre Wood is actually on the same narrow country road.
