Story published in Newbury Weekly News with my concerns about effect on Theale of nuclear submarine dismantling project

A story has been published in this week's Newbury Weekly News with a quote from me on the possible effects on Theale if AWE Aldermaston is selected for this project. You can read the story here.

The project is to dismantle unused British nuclear submarines (17 at the moment) and to store the resulting intermediate nuclear waste until at least the 2040s. The waste would have to be transported from the place where the submarines are dismantled to the site selected for storage. If AWE Aldermaston is selected, the waste may be transported along the Theale bypass.
