Divers have been sent in to the pools at the Dungeness A site as work starts to decommission the ponds at the nuclear power station. The pools were used to store nuclear fuel in skips before it was sent off site for reprocessing. The site has been free of fuel for four years but the pools still need to be removed safely. Divers were sent in to cut up the pool and package 20 tonnes of waste for disposal at the Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria.
