Radiation Free Lakeland are lobbying for independent radiation monitoring in the North West. This used to be carried out by Radiation Monitoring in Lancashire – RADMIL – which was disbanded a few years ago due to council cuts.

Fukushima Day – March 11th 2014
An open letter to the staff and management of the Office for Nuclear Regulation.
We are here to mark Fukushima day, and to register our concerns about the nukiller industry.
The Office for Nuclear Regulation’s mission statement of aims include:-
‘in securing nuclear safety and security in the UK and influencing global safety and security standards.’
– Yet there in no such thing as a safe atomic reactor.
The continuing disasters at Chernobyl and Fukushima clearly illustrate just how dangerous these plants can be.
– It is no use working to make the reactors safe, while there is no safe way to deal with the long lasting radioactive which they produce.
– Rising see levels which will endanger & engulf the plants within the next 35 – 50 years.
That is many years before plants like Bradwell, Sizewell, Heysham, & Dungeness have been decommissioned. The resent storms around the coasts of Britain cleanly illustrate just what will happen in the very near future.
We urge you all to consider these long term issues and work to change their aims of the Office for Nuclear Regulation to become that of safely closing down all nukiller plants.
