Moorside Sheep looking toward Sellafield-Streetview.
Moorside is now estimated to have a physical footprint of over 500 acres:
“The ‘biggest construction project in Europe’ is expanding from Nugen’s original 200 hectare site to 552 hectares of farmland reaching right up to two villages and an 11th Century church. But with compulsory purchase on the cards, there’s nothing locals can do except keep on fighting the entire deeply flawed project.“. http://www.theecologist.org/campaigning/2966465/moorside_cumbria_the_great_nuclear_land_grab.html (Or the locals may be intimidated into silence due to compensation fears related to compulsory purchase, i.e. expropriation).
NUGEN is a consortium of Japan’s Toshiba and France’s ENGIE – formerly called GDF-Suez.
While with UK BREXIT Moorside, sitting upon the Irish Sea, may no longer be in the EU, a nuclear accident would most likely impact Europe, including Ireland, based on the distances the radioactive plumes travelled for the Chernobyl and Windscale Nuclear Accidents, and depending on prevailing winds. It also endangers Norway, not in the EU.
New, Short, Easy to Read, Technical Report on Problems with the AP1000: http://www.theecologist.org/_download/402328/ap1000-report.pdf
Please note that this Westinghouse-Toshiba reactor model (AP1000) is currently under construction in the US states of Georgia and South Carolina, with several more proposed (again) in Florida: Levy Co, and Turkey Pt near Miami. AP1000s are under construction-proposed in China, India and Bulgaria, as well.
