Another AWE Bomb Factory "Accident"

Awe leak radiation into the Aldermaston Stream. 


This is not an isolated incident. Every few years we are all put in danger. Despite repeated calls for an independent enquiry into safety they keep it internal and so don't seem to learn lessons. 

Peter Burt, Director of Nuclear Information Service NIS) said: “This is the second case within twelve months where a government agency has had to take enforcement action against AWE because of failures in management arrangements.

“AWE puts a lot of effort into creating the image that it is a super-efficient company that doesn’t make mistakes, but regularly occurring problems at Aldermaston show that things can and do go wrong

“News of this incident has only leaked out months after the event itself and AWE did nothing to inform local members of the public about the matter. The company should be more honest about its safety and environmental performance and must keep local communities informed about incidents that take place at its sites”.
