SELLAFIELD faces a top level probe into a radioactive leak which went 14 months before being spotted – on the day of the Prime Minister’s recent visit.
Details of the leak from an overhead open-air pipe were first revealed in The Whitehaven News last week and today the News can disclose that the nuclear site’s regulators have decided to hold their own investigations.
It could lead to prosecution but no decisions have been made on what action might follow.
