There have been mixed reviews over Cumbria County Council's decision to rule out west Cumbria as a nuclear waste disposal site.
Below are some of their views:
"Delighted, so many people have worked hard to get this decision. Well Done! common sense has prevailed"
"We only need Carlisle City Council to refuse development of Carlisle Airport and this county is stuffed"
"This is a very sad day for the future of west Cumbria"
"I think we are too small a country to have a nuclear waste site, should be in places like the unpopulated extremes of Russia"
Councillors will decide whether to look for a site to bury nuclear waste. We look at the arguments AGAINST going forward in the process.
As 24 councillors prepare to decide whether west Cumbria should look for a possible site to bury nuclear waste we look at the arguments FOR.
