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"
