Cracks Found On Nuclear Reactor Could Lead To Evacuation Of Edinburgh And Glasgow

According to Edinburgh Live, the reactors have what is called keyway root-cracking, where the graphite moderator cores in the reactors develop cracks leading to instabilities. In turn, this could lead to a major nuclear accident.

The reactors have been closed since October 2018 as a result of the fault, but EDF Energy, who own the plant, are making a case for turning them back on.

Although the probability of a meltdown is still low, the consequences could be severe, and would result in the evacuation of both Glasgow and Edinburgh due to radioactive contamination.
