BBC News - 22/05/12

The search for an underground storage site for high-level nuclear waste is likely to go ahead in Cumbria after a poll showed residents are in favour.

In Copeland, the local authority area encapsulating Sellafield, 68% of people backed entering formal talks with government on hosting the repository.

Across Cumbria as a whole, 53% are in favour and 33% opposed.

West Cumbria is the only region to show an interest in the repository; if talks fail, the UK has no "Plan B".

Never mind the geology, it's the votes of Sellafield workers that count.
