Over 40 former employees of Sellafield Visitors' Centre attended a reunion to share their memories and reminisce with old colleagues.

The popular attraction, run by BNFL, was officially opened in 1988 by Prince Philip and went on to become one of West Cumbria's biggest tourist attractions.

The £5million centre which operated for 20 years was demolished earlier this year.

A Facebook page called the Mighty Atom Reunion was set up to help former employees reconnect with one another.

The Mighty Atom was recognised as one of the centre's mascots who rode overhead on a nuclear transport flask, telling the story of recycled spent fuel.

Christine Parker, who worked as a supervisor at the centre, helped to organise the reunion, which was held at Egremont Rugby League Club on Saturday.

She said: "It was absolutely brilliant. It was so nice catching up with everybody and reliving a few funny tales.

"Everybody said we will have to have another one. It was nice seeing all the old familiar faces. It went really, really well.

"It was a good night. It took you back. It was just like going back in time and seeing them all. We shouldn't have left it so long."

A raffle was also held, which raised £268 for Danica's Dream Fund - a charity set up in memory of Egremont teen, Danica Maxwell, which supports children and families affected by cancer.

Sellafield Visitors' Centre closed its doors in 2008. It had attracted over two million visitors.
