Atomic Weapons Establishment leaks tritium gas into stream via BBC

The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) in Aldermaston has been criticised for leaking radioactive gas into a stream.

There was an increase in levels of tritium in Aldermaston Stream after AWE turned off a ventilation fan in a radioactive waste storage unit.

The Environment Agency said the low levels of radiation in the stream did not represent an environmental hazard.
