Possible nuclear storage sites
Five nuclear facilities across the UK have been identified as potential sites to store waste from disused nuclear-powered submarines.
The sites, which are either owned by MOD, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) or industry, have been named as part of MOD’s submarine dismantling project (SDP).
They already hold radioactive materials and have been identified as possible locations to store reactor components from the submarines that have left naval service.
