Allerdale vote YES to look for nuclear waste site

Allerdale Borough Council have voted yes to look for a nuclear waste disposal site in west Cumbria.

The voting carried a 5-2 majority.

"It was right for us to undertake our own debate on this issue.

"I personally think that Cumbria County Council have got it wrong. We will enter into a conversation with Government to see if there is any way we can still go forward."
