The People against Wylfa B (PAWB) group leafleted railway stations across North Wales. Demonstrations have been held against radioactive waste being transported by rail along the North Wales coast. Members of PAWB (People Against Wylfa B handed out leaflets at train stations including Bangor, Llandudno Junction, Colwyn Bay and Rhyl on Saturday morning, alerting commuters of the nuclear waste that is transported up to twice a week from Wylfa to Sellafield in Cumbria. The Nuclear Decomissioning Authority (NDA) say such waste has been transported since 1962 without a single accident. But PAWB argues that if a train carrying waste was to be involved in a collision, residents would be exposed to “highly dangerous and lasting radiation”.
