I'd bet they are.
AND e.g. many km of railway the stuff has been transported along
and
and
and
and, to some (and meanwhile a quite considerable, ie. easily-measurable extent) every last creek, every last human body, every raindrop !!

the MoD has realised that there are others areas of radioactive contamination across the country that may need to be cleaned up, Brown said. 'They've started to use their lawyers to get out of what is, in the first place, I think, a moral responsibility and in the second place, will become a legal responsibility.'

+++++++++++ Is anyone surprised about this?

Sadly noted. What is floating towards the US across the Pacific? Great sorrow.

"'They've started to use their lawyers to get out of what is, in the first place, I think, a moral responsibility and in the second place, will become a legal responsibility.'... The MoD, however, has defended its actions, insisting that other parties could have been involved in spreading the contamination at Dalgety Bay. It has been 'entirely open' about contamination at other sites, MoD sources said." --- Looks like someone is trying to deflect attention from themselves and avoid responsibility. And while all this posturing is going on, how many people will suffer health issues as a result? How much land, that otherwise could be good productive land, will be lay waste as a result of "someone's" ignorance and lack of ethics? Quit passing the buck and get the clean up moving!
