'THE GATE WAS OPEN, THERE WERE NO SECURITY GUARDS.. I WALKED UP TO THE TRAIN AND PLANTED MY BOMB'
Nuclear transport expert Dr John Large has estimated an attack on containers of radioactive waste could kill 8,000 people in an instant.
Thousands more would become victims as a vast poisonous cloud of up to a hundred square miles drifted across Britain.
People would assume it is the most closely-guarded train in the land but in fact it's just like any other freight train.
"If someone wanted to sabotage it or hold up the military supply line, they wouldn't need to overpower anyone."
MPs yesterday said the Mirror's investigation had shown the ammo trains were scandalously vulnerable.
The revelation comes less than six months after the Mirror told how trains carrying deadly nuclear waste to Sellafield were at risk of terrorist attack after being left similarly unguarded at stations.
