People opposed to the building of a nuclear waste dump have gathered on Mablethorpe beach in opposition to the move. Around 150 people were at the beach on Saturday, August 14, to mark their opposition to the proposal – which would affect the former Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal. Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) has flagged the site as a potential geological disposal facility where radioactive waste would be buried deep underground. One of the organisers of yesterday’s event, who didn’t wish to be named, told Lincolnshire Live: “There is a lot of anger about what has been done here. “People have moved to this area because they wanted a quiet, countryside life and so the idea of having a nuclear waste dump has upset pretty much all local residents. “A local estate agent even said that people immediately started to pull out of house sales when the news about the proposal first came out. “They think that just to get the spoil out of the ground will mean about 20 lorries an hour going back and forth, which doesn’t seem realistic on the roads around here. “We’re waiting to hear more details at the moment because we’re still in the dark on this, but we’re going to continue to protest against it.
