Congratulations on your reporting of Cumbria County Council's decision to reject planning permission for a nuclear waste depository in the county (M Star January 31).
Other newspapers talk of burial of nuclear waste which is not the case - it is an underground depository.
Nirex came up with a secret list of over 500 possible sites for depositories in Britain in the 1990s, but only 11 stood any real chance of selection.
Surprisingly, environmental campaigners are calling for all nuclear material to be allowed to rot further within the confines of Sellafield.
Former University of Glasgow geophysics professor David Smythe, who previously worked for Nirex, says that there is nowhere in Cumbria suitable for a depository.
The unions say this is not the case. So who are we to believe?
The whole saga points to the madness of nuclear power regeneration.
I believe that a nuclear depository needs to be built in Britain to store the waste now lying on the ground.
To build such a depository, we need hard rock and tunnelling skills.
Would it not be sensible to set up a hard rock mining school to train the young and the unemployed in preparation for the building of any future depository and other underground rock infrastructure projects?
