PLANS on how to evacuate large numbers of people across Copeland following a serious radiation incident at Sellafield might have to be made soon.
Have your say
well i think sellafeild would be better off giving us a premiership football club instead of putting money into a evacuation plan
I'm very glad that Copeland have focus at at plan that a serious radiation incident at Sellafield might have to be made soon. In the Nordic countries we are worried about what the the consequences may be. A report from Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority said that a hypothetical accident at Sellafield. The scenario considered involves an explosion and fire at the B215 facility resulting in a 1 % release of the total HAL inventory of radioactive waste with a subsequent air transport and deposition in Norway. Air transport modelling is based on real meteorological data show that it may be 10 times Tjernobyl for Norway. If you want the link to the report, please mail me.
Hey - we in the Nordic countries are pleased that our focus on safety and possible consequences. NRPA from Norway has prepared a report that focuses on a hypothetical accident at Sellafield and consequences in Norwayhttp://www.nrpa.no/eway/default.aspx?pid=240&trg=Center_6352&Center_6352=6401:88342::0:6371:1:::0:0
