As we suggested in the earlier post Hitachi has now confirmed a halt to its plan to develop a new build nuclear power plant at the Wylfa site on Anglesey:
The Celtic League welcome the news and hope the ‘pause’ becomes permanent.
The latest move coming after other plans to build a new series of reactors at Moorside in Cumbria were halted last year and casts a huge shadow over the ‘next nuclear’ strategy.
Celtic League has opposed ‘new-build’ since out AGM at Landernev in Brittany in 2006. We were a constant campaigner over safety and publicised many instances of reactor and site safety not least at the old Wylfa plant which is now closed and which was the site of the most serious nuclear incident in the UK since the Windscale fire.
