Faslane safety below standard

A new report shows that there are a series of safety failings at the Trident base on the Clyde. The annual review was obtained by Sunday Herald journalist Rob Edwards. It lists 13 areas of which 9 were "below standard" and 2 were "significantly below standard". SNP defence spokesperson Angus Robertson MP said the failings "clearly put lives at risk".

The report also refers to a new radioactive waste treatment plant. In 2009 the Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator condemned the existing plant and said that it must be replaced when it reaches the end of its life in 2014 (DNSR letter). Now the MOD say the replacement won't be available before 2017. John Ainslie, Scottish CND Coordinator, said "The MOD should stop producing nuclear waste at Faslane if they have nowhere to put it."
