A serious incident at Heysham Nuclear Power Station has left three people injured in hospital. The men were injured in a serious industrial incident at the nuclear power station at 10.30pm last night. A spokesman for the EDF operated power station said an accidental ‘steam release’ at Heysham 1 caused high-temperature steam to escape. The spokesman said the steam was ‘clean’ and did not pose a threat to the public or the environment. She said: “This is not a common occurrence, and we do regard it as a serious incident due to the injuries to the three people on site. We do plan for these incidents and we have an emergency response team prepared for these types of incidents.
