    Nuclear warhead plant could be sut down.

    UK nuclear warhead plant warned: ‘Improve safety or shut down’ .

    Safety fears may halt the assembly of Britain’s nuclear warheads unless sweeping improvements are made soon, it has emerged.

    The Office for Nuclear Regulation has ordered immediate safety changes to be made at the UK’s nuclear warhead assembly facility at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) Burghfield, in Berkshire, its annual report reveals.

    The ONR warns that, even with the changes, operations at the Berkshire site will be allowed to continue only for a limited period.

    If enough progress is not made in reducing safety risks at the top-secret facility, the regulator has said, operations may need to stop completely – a move that could have serious consequences for equipping the submarine fleet with nuclear weapons.

    Found this on the MSN site here: https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/uk-nuclear-warhead-plant-warned-‘improve-safety-or-shut-down’/ar-BBLvjU3?MSCC=1533464766&ocid=spartandhp

    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………

    After the recent discussion on nuclear power plants and how their waste products like Uranium and Plutonium can be used in making our own nuclear weapons, we now find that where these weapons are being manufactured the safety protection is just not up to scratch.

    I don't know about you people, but this makes me very nervous.

    Wow, that is another great link Angie.

    One would think that a plant that makes nuclear weapons would have a safety system that is the best that can possibly be.

    Seems not, in this case.

    That is quite a bit scary.

    Yeah, that's a good one Angie.

    I will now keep an active eye on what happens to this nuclear plant.

    As will all at ROB.

    It is ridiculous and a scandal that a nuclear power station cannot set in place the most stringent safety rules that are possible.

    Do we really want another Three Mile Island or Chernoble here in Britain ?
