Nuclear Waste Leaked into French River


news.bbc.co.uk

France's nuclear safety watchdog has ordered a plant in the country's south to temporarily close after a uranium leak polluted the local water supply.

The plant's operator has been told to improve safety procedures at the site.

Waste containing unenriched uranium leaked into two rivers at the Tricastin plant at Bollene, 40km (25 miles) from the popular tourist city of Avignon.

People in nearby towns have been warned not to drink any water or eat fish from the rivers since Monday's leak.

Officials have also cautioned people not to swim in the rivers or use their water to irrigate crops.
