To the Scottish Environment and Protection Agency, the Office for Nuclear Regulation and EDF. Radiation Free Lakeland fully endorse the views of David Autumns in his letter below. Namely that Hunterston B SHOULD NOT be restarted. SEPA, and the ONR have a duty of care to the public. Scotland is producing more energy than it needs from renewables. There is no ‘need’ for Hunterston B to be restarted and in any event to put the public in certain danger of nuclear catastrophe is beyond madness. We, to use the phraseology of Extinction Rebellion, DEMAND that Hunterston B (fuelled by Springfields Nuclear Fuels at the end of Preston New Road) is mothballed – it is way beyond time.
