Wylfa has undergone its most in-depth security inspection ever by nuclear police to ensure it is prepared for a terrorist attack. The site in Anglesey was subject to a ‘Multi Discipline Intervention’ – the most thorough security inspection it had ever hosted and the first of its kind on a Magnox nuclear site.
