HMNB Clyde staff ‘moved after serious radiation breach’ at Trident RNAD Coulport nuclear base

Staff ‘moved after serious radiation breach’ at Trident nuclear base. Staff
at the base housing the UK’s nuclear deterrent had to be moved after a
serious radiation breach, a whistleblower has alleged.

HMNB Clyde personnel working in a building at Royal Naval Armaments Depot (RNAD) Coulport, where
warheads are managed, had to be shifted recently following the incident.
The base on Loch Long in Argyll is the storage and loading facility for the
nuclear weapons for the UK’s Trident programme.

Neale Hanvey, Alba MP for
Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, asked the UK defence secretary Ben Wallace about
the situation in the House of Commons. “A whistleblower has alleged that
HMNB Clyde staff were recently moved from Building 201 at Coulport where
warheads are managed to Building 41 elsewhere due to a serious radiation
breach,” Hanvey said.

He asked Wallace how many such events had been
registered in the past three years and whether they had been reported to
the public. He also accused the Government and other Westminster parties of
“ignoring” the people of Scotland “who are overwhelmingly opposed to
weaponed on mass destruction”. The defence secretary said he would write
to Hanvey to answer the list of claims.
