Nuclear cheerleaders now think it would be a good idea to churn up the radioactively contaminated Irish Sea to boil in new untried, untested nuclear reactors. The reactors would be located on beautiful greenfields and hedgerows between Sellafield and up to and in Beckermet’s Peterburgh farm, which would be demolished.

The safe discharge of wastes into the sea depends upon achieving adequate dilution of the effluent, otherwise inshore biological reserves may be damaged. Water in the north-east Irish Sea can be identified because of its content of radioactive caesium emanating from the Windscale nuclear fuel processing plant. A survey shows how closely this water hugs the coasts as it travels across the Irish Sea and along the west and north coasts of Scotland. Inshore waters receive almost all our effluents and this report suggests that the dilution capacity of the sea may be far less…
