The final ten boilers from the Magnox Power Station at Berkeley in Gloucestershire have been removed successfully. Its the latest stage of the decommissioning of the site.
The first five boilers were sent off site early last year and have now been smelted, with 92-95per cent being recycled. In total the removal of the 15 boilers means that 4,665 tonnes of legacy waste have been removed from the site.
Measured end to end, the 15 boilers would reach the top of Cleeve Hill, the highest point in Gloucestershire.
