Calls have been made for residents to receive compensation following proposals for nuclear waste storage in Bradwell.
 

The Blackwater Against New Nuclear Group (BANNG) has raised concerns that proposed nuclear waste storage at Bradwell power station may be “indefinite”, contrary to suggestions from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).
 

The fears follow revelations of money-saving proposals to store waste from both Sizewell and Dungeness power stations at Bradwell until a geological disposal facility has been constructed, which may not be until 2040.
 

NDA spokesman Jonathan Jenkin said: “In terms of options, we’re only consulting on interim storage."
