27 nuclear perils

On 28 October, the ministry of defence began a public consultation on its proposals for dismantling 27 out-of-service nuclear powered submarines and for managing the resulting radioactive wastes. The nuclear submarine forum (NSF), a network representing 16 local campaign groups, is calling for responses to the MoD’s proposal to place radioactive waste from the submarines in “interim storage” until a proposed long-term disposal facility opens in... 2060. www.nuclearsubwaste.net
