Countering Capenhurst – Spring 2020

Capenhurst 50 years on

On March 4th there was a none alcoholic celebration of the founding of URENCO in the Capenhurst staff canteen.

While we were outside the plant holding a none celebratory event.

Upon assembling at the entrance to the plant we noted two French vehicles with radioactive markings on them.

As we left there was a radiation reading taken from them.

These reading and a report of the event are to be found of the Radiation Free Lakeland website.
