A NUCLEAR weapons factory near Reading will remain under extra scrutiny until at least 2021 because of safety concerns. The UK’s nuclear warheads are designed, made and maintained at two sites close to Reading: AWE Aldermaston and Burghfield. Both have been under extra scrutiny for around six years due to safety concerns. According to a new report from the regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), the two sites will remain under enhanced regulatory attention — similar to a school being in special measures — for at least two years.
