British nuclear reprocessing plant Sellafield said it had detected “high levels of radioactivity at one of its on-site monitors and was operating at reduced staffing levels.


Rory O’Neill (no really) of Sellafield assures us:

“One of the 20-odd site perimeter monitors that we have is registering above normal levels of radiation. It’s not a level that would trigger any kind of activity on or off site. It’s below levels that would demand us to do sheltering or anything like that.”

Above normal?
