Nuclear Submarine Not Welcome in Southampton Docks

Categories: 

Nuclear powered submarine, HMS Trafalgar arrived into Southampton Docks on Friday morning, before the Sotonsafe Nuclear Safety Plan is due to be tested on 14th January 2009. All emergency services and the City Council are on standby in case there is a problem with this 27 year-old submarine. The 5-day Public Relations Exercise and recruitment drive will be undermined by Trafalgar’s recent nuclear accident at Devonport Dockyard in Plymouth and the difficulty in protecting people in the Southampton area and beyond in the event of a nuclear accident.
