UK Nuclear Reactor out of Control: Unbelievable
Seriousness of a Major Radioactive Release
Red Ice Creations
After learning of the numerous outrageous mishaps that continue to occur at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, it probably shouldnt come as much of a shock that other plants seem to have their own hushed-up catastrophes. If the general public realized how much danger they were constantly in, theyd never allow another nuclear power plant to be built.

Brits Lose Control of Nuke Reactors: Unbelievable
Seriousness of a Major Radioactive Release
By Mac Salvo | SHTF Plan
After the world witnessed a widespread radioactive disaster following the Tsunami that took down power systems at the Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan you would think that nuclear regulators and operators would have taken the threat of unforeseen accidents seriously.
Apparently, this is not the case, according to a new report from the United Kingdom.
Nearly the exact same scenario played out in the Devonport Dockyard last summer, when the primary and secondary power sources for nuclear cooling fuel became inexplicably inoperable.
It was a situation kept secret because the implications were so serious that the entire country of Britain could have been turned to a radioactive wasteland overnight.
A major nuclear incident was narrowly averted at the heart of Britains Royal Navy submarine fleet, The Independent on Sunday can reveal. The failure of both the primary and secondary power sources of coolant for nuclear reactors at the Devonport dockyard in Plymouth on 29 July last year followed warnings in previous years of just such a situation.
Experts yesterday compared the crisis at the naval base, operated by the Ministry of Defence and government engineering contractors Babcock Marine, with the Fukushima Daiichi power-station meltdown in Japan in 2011.
But last July a series of what were described as unidentified defects triggered the failures which meant that for more than 90 minutes, submarines were left without their main sources of coolant.
John Large, an independent nuclear adviser who led the team that conducted radiation analysis on the Russian Kursk submarine which sank in the Barents Sea in 2000, said:
It is unbelievable that this happened. It could have been very serious. Things like this shouldnt happen. It is a fundamental that these fail-safe requirements work. It had all the seriousness of a major meltdown a major radioactive release.
