Anti-nuclear Support 300 miles away.

Campaigners in Cumbria have thanked Essex councillors for opposing a nuclear power station.

Designs for a nuclear power station close to the site of a former plant in Bradwell have been revealed.

The design for the new Bradwell B reactor has passed the first step of a four-step process, and will be assessed by UK nuclear regulators.

But campaigners, along with Colchester Council, which is against the plans, have issued warnings about the risks.

Now a message of support has been sent to Colchester Council from Radiation Free Lakeland in Cumbria.

The letter sent by Marianne Birkby on behalf of the campaign group, said: “We are all volunteers with Radiation Free Lakeland which was set up in 2008 to fight against the Geological Disposal Facility which was planned for Cumbria.

“Colchester is absolutely right to take a stand against nuclear and we in Cumbria believe this should be a rallying cry to other councils to join the resistance.

“The nuclear industry is, we believe, out of control and it is now councils and the public rather than the increasingly lap dog regulators who will hold the industry to account and say enough is enough.”

Residents in the Maldon district have been having their say on the plans.

The purpose of the generic design assessment, which is being reviewed, is to determine whether the design meets safety and security standards.
