« Cash for coal mine clean-up halved by legal loophole | Main | 37 security incidents at UK nuclear plants - the highest for three years »



I live near Kirkconnel opencast and worked there for 4-5yrs.They have buried hundreds of waste truck tyres which are 9ft tall. They have buried waste oil drums and filters. This was to save them paying money to get the waste up-lifted. No wonder there is so many locals suffering and dying from Cancer in this area and hundreds more suffering from Breathing Problems ie Athsma and COPD. And they are Trying to blame Chernobyl that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. Trying to convince us all that the wind blew it over here and the rain brought it down on the local villages of Dumfries & Galloway. However if you read the article on here about Dirty Coal and how it affects health you will see that its the coal and the dust and the Diesel Fumes from the Machinery thats doing the damage. But then again maybe the wind is blowing it all elsewhere and causing Health problems in Russia. They have all came in and ripped up the countryside and buried there waste and land-rovers in the hills and made millions and treated the work-force like a pigeon treats a statue.
