Cumbria Trust

DrumsBBC Inside Out reporter Chris Jackson travels to America to find out if lessons can be learned from their experiences of turning nuclear waste into mixed oxide (MOX) fuel.

America:
“Everything that you could think of has gone wrong with the MOX project; overspending, mismanagement of the schedule, lack of quality control, lack of trained workers in building nuclear projects.”  ~ Tom Clements of Savannah River Site Watch
UK:

“For the last three months, I’ve been trying to have a word with someone from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and in all that time, no one was available to answer my questions.” ~ Chris Jackson  BBC Look North

Inside Out is on BBC One North East & Cumbria and North West on Monday, 29 September at 19:30 BST and nationwide for seven days thereafter.
