Sellafield nuclear plant has been closed due to "staff welfare" following adverse weather, a spokesperson has said:
– A Spokesperson for Sellafield
Sellafield is not one plant, it has over 1300 buildings – because of this when the site is fully operational it is like a small town, with over
10,000 people working here, moving around. Because of the high winds and the heavy snow, and the fact that a number of roads in West Cumbria have already be closed, it would be unsafe to allow people to move around in this way...There are no nuclear specific aspects of this incident.
