Stop Nuclear Power protesters, disguised as fish, locked themselves together across the entrance to Sizewell nuclear power station on 2 February. They were graphically illustrating their concern that nuclear operators and the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate have not taken the possibility of flooding and coastal erosion at Sizewell into account when considering plans for the site, particularly those for building a new nuclear reactor and storing radioactive waste there until at least 2130.The blockaders were in place by 7am and stayed there till 10am, when they released themselves. There were no arrests.
