According to the BBC - due to the weather. So, probably means that the workforce cant get in due to the snow

My brother works there, when he's not fetching people from the sea. He's not answering his phone.

You'll be fine. Just make sure you have your camera ready for "the self taken photo thread".

I wonder how many eager reporters are flocking to the area, non if they have any sense.

That's nothing to do with the incident. He just doesn't want to talk to you
Bellend.

He's just called me back. He was on mornings and can't tell me anymore about the incident.

More from Karl Connor, spokesman at Sellafield: "The shutdown has nothing to do with the work here at the site. This is purely a safety issue because of the high winds and snow, we want our 8,500 workers to go early and get home safely."

No doubt the anti nuclear lobby will be out in force wailing that it isn't safe, it's killing the sea et etc...

Although on tht note, look up buildings B30 and B38...

If you are referring to me, you can shove your oversized head up from the place where you pooh from.
 
Worked at Sellafield off and on, now and then for years...
Oh sigh. the nuclear industry can't win - because of the regulations specific to the industry every little "incident" has to be reported and made public spill a bucket of ( non radioactive) water in a containment area and it has to be made public -any other industry it would just be mopped up.
Of course it's right that standards should be very high and no-one who's ever had anything to do with fissile material would want it any other way But the ****ing journos turn it into the next TMI, Chernobyl, Fukushima...
