A walkway has been cordoned off to prevent access to a contaminated area following the spillage of radioactive water vapour or condensate.

The leak came from a pipe line connected to an overhead ventilation duct carrying liquid from the Magnox reprocessing plant for treatment before aerial discharge.

Operators Sellafield Ltd said there was a steady drip of the condensate which was found to be contaminated with radioactive materials.
