Hopefully nothing will happen, it won't be them just walking in the main gates, it is one of the most secure places on the face of the planet, hell,
they even have anti aircraft guns, I can't think of anywhere in the UK with that sort of armament.
I will update if any further information is made public.

I think everybody is jittery at the moment, although I think the racial profiling suggestion is a bit stretched, I mean, some guys, who are most
likely of the Muslim faith (80% of Bangladesh is Muslim), in their 20's photographing one of the largest nuclear facilities in the world? I look at
Sellafield at least once a week and I can honestly say there is nothing exciting to photograph, especially now they have tore the main cooling towers
down. As for the package, it wasn't in the car, it was at a London address, "although the container is now not thought to have had explosives or
hazardous material in it."
If it is innocent, it was a stupid move on the young lads parts.

Nobody was linking them taking photographs to people making weapons, they were emphasising the point that there is a lot of nasty stuff in the place.
If the terrorists were going to do anything they would fly an aircraft into the big tanks filled with radioactive gas as I believe that is the only
thing which isn't designed to take the impact of such an event.
Sellafield is responsible for the enrichment of materials used in the UK atomic weapons, as well as supplying MOX fuel to the likes of Japan. Waste
material stored there has come from all round the world. If the terrorists wanted to cause mayhem, it's the perfect place to do it, providing they
can get close.
