Australia still ‘TOTALLY radioactive’ following British nuclear tests in 1950s

During the 1950s and 60s, the British carried out testing of 12 nuclear bombs which were comparable to the one dropped on Hiroshima at Maralinga and Emu Field in South Australia, and Monte Bello in Western Australia.

Some Australians say that there are still high levels of radiation around the area which are having an effect on locals.

Sue Coleman-Haseldine claims that in the area where she grew up in Kokatha, radiation poisoning is still giving people cancer and leading to serious birth defects.
