Nuclear waste is coming to a place near you

There are plans to make Kent the country's first nuclear waste site...

Apparently the plan is to bury it 1 km down under Romney Marsh in sealed containers.

Containers that must last for thousands of years.

In a place that gets earth quakes occasionally.

By the sea where we get our fish from.

Near the aquifers that supply most of Kent's drinking water.

However we do need to store the waste; the nuclear waste has been created and needs to be dealt with. Of course I don't want it in my beautiful county!

Most importantly we need to stop producing the waste by commissioning no more nuclear power stations. They are simply unnecessary as well as being dirty, dangerous and expensive.
