Quotes

"Magnox are committed to mitigating the impact of decommissioning on the communities in which we operate through socio-economic support and this is a great example of socio-economic funding being put to good use.”"
"One the greatest strengths of Atomic Accidents is the author's consistently vivid and energetic narrative style; this is a book that is very difficult to put down."
Jo Dear of Natural England added, "The early success is hugely rewarding for the partnership and a testament to all the hard work and goodwill put in by everyone involved. In response to the recent decline in numbers of the Sussex emerald moth at Dungeness, the partnership's actions are already making a significant contribution towards its continued breeding success. Natural England is delighted to support this innovative project and by working together across the Dungeness peninsula the partnership is providing a lifeline for the Sussex emerald moth on this extraordinary site."
A statement on the Magnox website said: "No one has been injured, there has not been a release of radioactivity and there is no risk to staff, the public or the environment."
