COUNTER-TERRORISM police officers on the Sellafield site are appealing to the public to report anything suspicious. A new campaign – Project Servator – launched by the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC) will see an unpredictable police presence around the nuclear plant. This is designed to make it difficult for potential terrorists to plan their attack. Officers insist there is no direct threat to Sellafield but urge the public to be vigilant as nationally the threat remains severe. The tactics used as part of the project have been used regularly by the City of London Police, British Transport Police and by Police Scotland during the Commonwealth Games. “There’s no specific threat to the county or the site but the national threat is still severe – which means an attack is highly likely – so we don’t want people to be complacent,” said project leader Chief Inspector Tony Cole.
