Opponents of a proposed underground dumping of high level nuclear waste in west Cumbria held a protest outside Council offices in Carlisle this morning.
Cumbria County Council along with Copeland and Allerdale District Councils say they've taken Government advice and delayed a decision on the project for three months while more information on key areas is gathered.
The protest by the group Radiation Free Lakeland coincided with the Council's Cabinet Meeting.
