News stand - What the papers say

A highland landowner is demanding that the managers of Dounreay nuclear power station build a barrier to stop radioactive particles from the plant washing up on his beach.

Geoffrey Minter is claiming that monitoring for particles carried out by the UK Atomic Energy Authority is inadequate.

Construction of 20 wind turbines in north east Scotland has begun, three years after the scheme was approved. Renewable Energy Services' controversial £15M development in the Glens of Foundland is expected to generate electricity for 13,000 homes and be operational by summer 2005.
