Pipe work repair to continue


Work to repair a pipe continues at Sellafield this week after 20t of radioactive material leaked last month. The THORP nuclear reprocessing plant at the Cumbria site could be shut for months during the clean-up operation.

A Sellafield spokesman said the plant is in a safe and stable state and that there has been no impact on its workforce or the environment.
