Irish Greens decry nuclear build

Edie's reports that Irish Green party politician Mark Dearey has called for a debate over plans to build a string of next generation nuclear power stations along Britain's west coast amid concerns over possible design faults. Senator Dearey, speaking in the Irish parliament called for a house debate and investigation by the nuclear safety watchdog the UK Nuclear Installations Inspectorate into "the assertion that this reactor design is fundamentally unsafe". The minister spoke after French anti-nuclear campaigners claimed to have unearthed confidential documents leaked by an insider at French electricity company EDF showing tests on third-generation reactors show defects that could lead to "Chernobyl-type accident".
