Local opponents to a potential underground nuclear waste repository in Cumbria canvassed for signatures at the weekend.

Ms Birkby said: “The overwhelming majority of people we spoke to were appalled at the Government coming back with this new plan, and even some of those who had been staunchly pro-nuclear signed the letter.”

“The consultation aims to give the few people on the Allerdale and Copeland Borough Council Executive the sole right to make the decision. Cumbrians have already said no repeatedly to becoming the nuclear dumping ground for existing and future radioactive waste taken out of reactor cores and buried under Cumbria s leaky geology.”
