Nuclear waste proposals rejected

Proposals to dispose of nuclear waste in space or at sea have been rejected from the latest shortlist of options being consulted on by the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management.

The consultation, which forms part of a wider public and stakeholder engagement programme, will run until 27 June, with a final report due next summer.
