UK new coal mine – to pave the way for a radioactive waste dump?

Isle of Man Today 22nd March 2021, Campaigners opposed to plans for a new UK coal mine believe it will be a
‘Trojan horse’ for a nuclear waste disposal facility. Woodhouse Colliery will be Britain’s first deep coal mine in 30 years if it is sunk under the Irish Sea off the coast of Whitehaven.

But campaigners from Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole fear that the coal mine is a Trojan horse for the UK’s plans for a nuclear waste disposal facility in the area immediately adjacent. However, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s Radioactive Waste Management subsidiary insists a coal mine is simply not suitable as a site for a geological disposal facility for radioactive waste.
