Explosives Handling Jetty at Coulort

In October 2004, a report in the Sunday Herald revealed there had been 10 fires and 72 false alarms at Coulport. "There are three or four events a year that have got the adrenaline going," said Tom Ward, the superintendent in charge of Coulport. "But the location is not here by accident. We can absorb the consequences of a reactor or weapons incident within Coulport."
