Sellafield Disaster Update

27.09.2007

Families have met with the inquiry team investigating the removal of body tissue from nuclear workers. The meeting, in Whitehaven, Cumbria, on Wednesday 26th September, resulted in a support group being created.

Michael Redfern QC is currently looking into 65 reported cases, mainly involving staff employed at Sellafield in Cumbria, between 1962 and 1992. The inquiry began in April, after the GMB union said samples were taken from up to 70 former Sellafield employees. Mr Redfern had been unable to attend the meeting, but that he was expected to talk to the families sometime in the future.
