UK nuclear workers told to stay home as radioactivity rises


Britain’s Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site has told non-essential workers to stay home Friday due to the detection of abnormally high levels of radiation.

The radiation spike was detected by one of the monitors at the north end of the partially decommissioned site.

It was later said that this was a natural increase of radon gas from below ground and there was no need to worry. Not sure myself.
