IS THE LAKE DISTRICT REALLY THE BEST PLACE TO TURN INTO A RADIOACTIVE WASTELAND

“It’s home to the sweeping dramatic vistas that inspired Wordsworth.

Scenery so breath-taking tourists will flock there this summer bringing £2billion to spend at local businesses.

And while the picturesque landscape of the Lake District shaped over thousands of years shows no signs of abating, scratch the surface and you see a tale out of kilter with the area’s reputation for afternoon teas and leisurely hikes.

The story is one of big business, angry locals and radioactive waste.

Plans are currently being considered by three councils in the area to build the UK’s mammoth radioactive dumping ground – the size of a small city – underground there.

The move has polarised the community and led to accusations and counter accusations.

Here The Sunday Post looks at the escalating row over the controversial disposal site as decision day looms.”
