The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

A FOURTH unexploded bomb found near Britain’s Hinkley Point C nuclear site!

Bridgwater Mercury 16th Sept 2017, A FOURTH unexploded bomb thought to date back to the Second World War hasbeen found in the Bristol Channel not far from Hinkley C. Watchet
Coastguard say the 250lb device is partially detonated and is advising
vessels in the area to proceed with caution and stay at least 500m away
from the site. It is likely the device will be dealt with via a controlled
detonation later today (Saturday, September 16).
This is the fourth such device that has been found in the past two months, but EDF, who are
building a jetty for Hinkley C off the coast near Stogursey, say it is
normal practice to check the seabed before construction activity starts on
any marine project.
