Earlier today 19 Greenpeace activitists broke into the Sizewell B nuclear power station in order to expose the complete lack of security at Britain's flagship nuclear facility.

One of the Greenpeace protesters, Rob Gueterbock, who climbed on to the reactor dome, said: "Sizewell B is easier to get into than a Norwich nightclub" while a spokesman for British Energy complained that the activists had "damaged insulation, broken through a fence + smashed a door in the break-in"!

It would therefore appear that basic security at Sizewell B still leaves a great deal to be desired, inspite of a similar roof-top protest having taken place in October 2002!
