Credit: PA

A nuclear plant in west Cumbria will continue business as usual, despite the Government's decision to raise the terror threat to the highest level.

Sellafield Ltd employees have been asked to report for work as normal.

The national threat assessment has been raised to 'critical' following Monday’s terrorist attack in Manchester.

Sellafield Ltd says this does not change the security status of the Sellafield site.

We are in discussion with our regulator and other key stakeholders and the situation is being kept under constant review.
