UK government is cutting Police number guarding nuclear plants

The Tories are axing 200 frontline staff from the Civil Nuclear Constabulary this Parliament. This amounts to a 16 per cent cut in numbers,

the Sunday People reports.

Such officers guard plants like Sellafield, Dungeness, Sizewell B and Hartlepool. …

“Hundreds of the front line officers who protect sensitive nuclear power stations and radioactive materials are facing the axe, even though these are top terrorist targets.”

Last year, George Osborne told the House of Commons: “I am announcing there will be no cuts to the police budget at all.
