Groups Slam Plan to Stack Shipping Containers of Nuclear Waste Ever Higher Beside the Irish Sea Near Drigg

Note stacking; proximity to the Irish Sea; rust; pooling water. It is in the rainiest part of England: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/the-northerner/2015/dec/09/cumbria-is-the-wettest-part-of-england-dont-scrimp-on-flood-defences This nuclear waste dump is officially expected to collapse due to coastal erosion. There is nothing low-level about the waste found within it, either. The operators are a consortium of California based URS (AECOM), Swedish Studsvik, and French State owned AREVA. British Serco is an affiliate. The owner is the British government (NDA).
