Parish Councils around the Cumbrian Coast have teamed up to oppose the giant pylons from Moorside. Former US nuclear regulator Arnie Gundersen has told Radiation Free Lakeland that there would need to be two transmission lines 10 miles apart. Pylons are the least worst thing about Moorside. We suspect that those few Parish Councillors who are in favour of Moorside are grandstanding about the pylons because they know very well that their parishioners are increasingly concerned about the biggest nuclear development in Europe being dumped on our coastline. Our coastline, which is already suffering from the intolerable nuclear burdens of Sellafield and Drigg.
