UK; The cost of nuclear power
The financial cost of cleaning up and sorting out the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site in Cumbria, England has risen to £67.5bn.
In April 2005 radioactive waste leaked out from a cracked pipe into a sump chamber, there has been no environmental damage as a result of this leak.
A recent report by The Public Accounts Committee has said that deadlines to clean up the mess have been missed leaving decommissioning projects massively over budget.
This is currently costing the UK (tax payer) £1.5bn a year.
Such examples will give environmentalists plenty of ammunition in their call to abandon nuclear energy and pursue real investment in renewables.
