New use for Westoe Pit?

Geological repository proposed.

The Secretary of State for the Environment, and South Shields MP, David Miliband has proposed the construction of a geological nuclear waste repository, probably in advance of a decision to upgrade our nuclear energy production facilities.

Perhaps a new use for the sunken tunnels that were Westoe Colliery, nine miles out at sea and thousands of feet under the sea bed? Now that would get a few tongues wagging! (Cue Mr. Paget.)

Remember the almighty rows caused when the trains ran through the Boldons and Jarrow on their way to Sellafield?

(Actually I'm in favour, in principal, so long as the sites are VERY carefully considered.)


BBC News

What a load of rubbish, you would be he first to complain if it was ever suggested for Shields.
thank you for your interest, but I'm surprised that you failed to see the hint of sarcasm in my 'tongue in cheek' poost.
