Campaigners dismayed as application to dump Hinkley Point mud in the Bristol Channel is approved.

 Campaigners dismayed as application to dump Hinkley Point mud in the
Bristol Channel is approved. Anti-nuclear campaigners have expressed
‘deep dismay’ following confirmation that the Marine Management
Organisation (MMO) has approved EDF Energy’s application to dump mud and
sediment from the construction of the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station
into a coastal site close to the north Somerset town of Portishead.

“The MMO document endangers health all around the estuary, including the coast
of south Wales, as the Welsh Government Davidson Committee’s independent
report makes it clear that material dumped at Portishead travels
anticlockwise round the estuary,” Geiger Bay spokesperson Richard
Bramhall said. “This includes a long-term threat from inhalable particles
of uranium and plutonium. We are facing a culture of deliberate ignorance.
Future generations will pay the price.”
