What if it happened here ?

The US have advised all American citizens who are within 50 miles (80 kms) of the Fukushima nuclear accident to evacuate.  This map illustrates what this would mean if it was applied to any of the nuclear sites in Scotland.  Today there are nuclear power stations at Hunterston and Torness.  All British nuclear weapons and most nuclear-powered submarines are based at Faslane.  There is spent nuclear fuel and an operational military reactor at Dounreay. 

The map doesn't illustrate the other areas which could be affected by an accident on a nuclear submarine at sea, anywhere around Scotland, or an accident during the transport of nuclear weapons across the roads of Southern Scotland.
