RADIOACTIVE LEAK REPORTED AT REACTOR IN NORWAY
INVESTIGATION INTO WHY IT WAS NOT REPORTED UNTIL THE NEXT DAY.
The leak at the Halden in southern Norway spilled radioactive isotopes on
Monday and was due to a technical failure.
The Radiation Protection Authority says emissions are low. Staff were
evacuated immediately and no one was hospitalised.
The protection agency is investigating and not happy the incident was not
reported until the next day.
Comment from a supporter of Radiation Free Lakeland: “This casual attitude to nuclear leaks is common throughout the industry with an immediate reaction of playing down any dangers.The nuclear power industry has an inherent danger of “technical failures”.
