Plans to bury one million tonnes of low level radioactive waste in west Cumbria have gone to a Public Inquiry.
Cumbria County Council refused planning permission for the site at Keekle Head near Distington in May last year, prompting the company behind the proposals, Endecom, to appeal.
This has resulted in the Public Inquiry.
Endecom says the site is well suited and there is a need for such a facility, while anti-nuclear protesters strongly oppose the idea.
