Berkeley decommissioning programme reaches next stage

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reports that "Magnox, the licensee at Berkeley nuclear power station has taken a significant step towards hazard reduction at the decommissioning site, moving into the stage of ‘care and maintenance’".

For the next 60 years, the station will be left to decay to a 'safer state' before the final site clearance takes place.
