The resignation of an advisor who accused the Ministry of Defence of “ignoring its own advisory group” has called into question the future of a project aimed at dismantling nuclear submarines in central Plymouth.
Campaigners are expected to rally in Plymouth today to demonstrate against plans for a nuclear waste plant in the city centre. The plant would store dismantled reactor components from the UK's nuclear submarines.
Campaigners have given a warm welcome to news that local politicians in Plymouth are to oppose plans for a nuclear waste factory in the centre of their city. However, fears remain that the government will still seek to force the plan through.
