Belly of the Beast
And that's what the inside of a nuclear reactor looks like... Wylfa is the UK's largest nuclear power station, and Trevor Sargent and myself paid a visit there yesterday to meet with plant management and express our concern about the Plant's continued operation. It's only 60 miles from Dún Laoghaire and is on Anglesey Island near Holyhead. Their Head of Information John Byast accompanied us. He is also chairman of the Isle of Anglesey County Council. They brought us into the reactor and allowed us to take photos. I think I have a "what am I doing in the Reactor Building of a Nuclear Power Station" expression in the last shot. We didn't get a chance to sample the bacon baps in the Visitors' Centre even though they come highly recommended by BNFL!
