Nuclear bill

CLEANING up the UK's nuclear waste will cost £14 billion more than the Government previously estimated.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority announced last week that the cost was likely to be £70 billion rather than the £56 billion previously quoted.

The Government has yet to work out what to do with the waste from decommissioning and has set up the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management to address the problem.
