You wouldn't need to. I live there and you can walk right up to the fence and take pictures, no problem. Theres a nature reserve that runs all the way along the outside of the outer perimeter and its an every day thing to see people, especcially dog walkers going through there. Never heard of anyone having this kind of trouble being near the nuclear power plants of Heysham. Hell, when i was a kid they did school trips to visit the reactors. You got inside and saw all kinds of stuff. No high tech security that I noticed.

Seems strange that other English plants would have such different levels of security for the exact same thing.

And so it begins...

And it's funny.... didn't the news and government just warn us that attacks were likely??

Wow.... they were right



This is a ****ing joke man.... this is going to happen every few days/weeks now, new terror plot, new arrests, new foiling of massive bomb plot involving multiple targets.... blah blah.


Keep people scared and distracted while they plot their next move...... and I'm talking about the governments, not the terrorists.....

It's probably one of these kind of stories:

BBC

or like this one:

Boingboing

The UK do like that terrorism law - can arrest people for very minor reasons.

Oh yeah, now you mention it isn't that the spot all the bird watchers love to go to? Binoculars & cameras akimbo...Suppose it wouldn't look odd having strangers bimble about.

Maybe these so called terrorists love Blackpool & the surrounding area too much.

I guess we aren't supposed to have hobbies or interests, maybe they're fascinated by the nuclear plant. It's quite a sight actually.

Are we supposed to now accept our freedoms stripped away to the point that we can't even look upon buildings they deem unwatchable?

This whole story is just disgusting me right now.

right for starters since its virtually impossible to get anywhere near sellafield (the important bits anyway!)
this would have happened to anyone who got too close what non brits need to understand is there really is a hardcore extremeist movement over here (though run by backward morons)
who probably thought they could walk into sellafield with a bottle pop bomb and cause a nuclear incident!
the sooner these f*$ktards are all rounded up and put on st kilda the better!
same as guns americans cry about "the state" stealing thier guns try living in a state where ALL GUNS ARE ILLEGAL(exept swat trained police officers) consequently all guns are hidden!
the westminster government thinks only gangs have guns when in truth almost anyone can get ANY GUN ANYWHERE IN THE UK FOR 100 QUID!
BATTLE LINES ARE DRAWN CIVIL WAR IS IMMINENT THE SOONER WE REALISE AND TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK THE BETTER!
you may not like me for what i am
or what i stand for but i have to say this when people like me take up arms
REVOLUTION IS ENEVITABLE!

"Maybe, just maybe our security was on high alert and found it highly suspicious that men were taking photo's of the plant - especially when things are so volatile. "

Maybe this, maybe that. Maybe they were friends who made a poor decision as to where to loiter while they drank a few six-packs.

Maybe the linked article made no mention of photography.

Maybe some people use paranoia to keep them warm at night.

Just to throw my two pennies worth in, my partner has family in the Cumbria area near to Windscale (where sellafield is) and i have to say that security is incredibly tight around there and has been for years. I have also worked at sellafield in the past (construction, nothing exciting for fellow ATS'ers!) and the amount of clearance and security needed to even get into the outlying buildings was incredible. To gain access to the main site area we had to get biometric data registered and this was over 10 years ago now, all very hollywood sci fi style (hand scans to get into buildings and we were nowhere near the really sensitive stuff). Cars stopping by fields / roadsides nearby are often quickly and quietly checked out.
May turn out to be nothing (in my opinion probably will) but the actual response and speed it was carried out with are, in our experience, fairly standard and nothing to get hyped up about.


i can certainly tell you as regards military security we are way faster and more secure here in the u.k than the u.s! when i was a bit younger we (friends and i) jumped a seemingly harmless fence and messed about for a while! there where lots of little stone huts whitch we began to investergate, what we found i can not talk about cus i have no interest in talking about it due to national security, but what i can say is within a minute or two of going into these little huts we where quickly round up and took to location where we was asked details of who we where and that info was then confirmed when our parents was contacted...this was over 20 years ago and we where all english born and breed!

so times being what they are i can honestly think there is certain places in britain you dont wanna go and certainly dont wanna be taking pictures of a nuclear power plant in britain if your a muslim! even if seemingly inocent common sence tells you that you will get butt #ed for it!

www.telegraph.co.uk...

One of the terrorist group’s most senior figures warned that al-Qaeda had obtained and hidden a nuclear bomb in Europe that would be detonated if Osama bin Laden was killed or captured.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the al-Qaeda mastermind currently facing trial in America over the 9/11 atrocities, was involved in a range of plans including attacks on US nuclear plants and a “nuclear hellstorm” plot in America.

all too close..this news gets out a few days ago and now they have caught him?

yeh right...

something stinks here...

On a serious note, I'd imagine Sellafield has a higher security as it used to have Magnox reactors which were designed to produce plutonium for nuclear weapons. Electricity production was a useful by-product.... Also up at Sellafield is Thorpe reprocessing facilities and stores of plutonium and spent fuel.

Section 41 (detention without charge)

Section 41 of the Act provided the police with the power to arrest and detain a person without charge for up to 48 hours if they were suspected of being a terrorist. This period of detention could be extended to up to seven days if the police can persuade a judge that it is necessary for further questioning.

This was a break from ordinary criminal law where suspects had to be charged within 24 hours of detention or be released. This period was later extended to 14 days by the Criminal Justice Act 2003, and to 28 days by the Terrorism Act 2006.

Maybe your just a fool. How else would they find a person near a nuclear plant? Are there no random stops? When they make stops, they are looking for........... terrorists.... so when they find one or think they find one... it MUST be a conspiracy. Plain ignorance!

We get it.... everything is a conspiracy, nothing is as it seems.. Pack your back pack... get dry goods... No your not insane.. lmfao.. The world is doooooomed!!!

Ahh thanks for clearing that up, did wonder why it would be such a Prime target.

not really since not all nuclear plants have the same capabillities sellafield is a reprocessing plant which is capable of enriching uranium or indeed plutonium its not the only one mind in the uk but thats the reason it has higher security!

Sellafield is a lot more than a powerstation. As someone said earlier it can produce weapons grade plutonium and is subject to the official secrets act. Then there's the reprocessing arm (thorpe etc) with enough waste to make the UK uninhabitable if released.

As you can imagine security is tight. It is also a no fly zone. They have jets ready to scramble from preston in case of an emergancy.

I live nearby, had an interview there once for a job and had to have a full police/security check just to get on site.

You assume he was killed in the last week?

Personally I think the bigger question is:- So hes dead, they will play this terrorism thingy out a bit longer BUT what will be the next threat to U.K and U.S? Asteroid? Alien invasion? or am getting ahead of myself.

just my thoughts.

no they prob wont, not for a while anyway. they have the population where they want them now, right in the palm of their hands, after accepting all the laws brought in since 9/11 with security and what you can and cant do, they dont want to make it too obvious so they let the people have some play time.
let them think their safe and they wont ask any questions and go about their daily lives accepting there is a bright future, meanwhile in the backround the elite plan their next step into game of control and power and dominance.

and the dice keeps rolling....

How exactly do they determine which vehicle to stop?

Maybe if the occupants all have brown skin?

What do they ask?

"Excuse me sir, are you a terrorist?"

"No."

"Okay, very good sir, carry on."
