RADIOACTIVE materials are “moving around the Irish Sea” while the government fails to safely dispose of waste from Britain’s nuclear power plants, a new report has revealed. The UK and Ireland Nuclear Free Local Authorities group (NFLA) says that for 50 years waste from Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant in Cumbria has been discharged into the Irish Sea where it settles on the sea bed but can be disturbed and “remobilised” by storms, waves and seismic activity. The report also says that the government’s failure to dispose of highly radioactive waste has caused creation of stockpiles of waste plutonium and uranium which will cost taxpayers billions of pounds to store for the next century.
