from where they 'found it'. It might have from above but its not short circuiting it from down there, so it could have been easily reset. Even if a
rat had short circuited a control in the switchboard its not hard to eliminate different circuits and find the problem, and i do know how big the
switch boards would be there, plus most of the terminals have easy access because the breakers and controls don't last for ever, plus they would have
had a # load of electricians on it.
To me it looks like therve found a dead rat put it in there and taken a photo and said 'it was just a rat haha nothing to worry about'. There hiding
something. They hid the truth from us when it happened and then when it went to # the media stopped talking about it and the majority forgot about it.

You know what, that is kind of what I thought too. I am no expert on the subject, but have seen squirrels frying on open residential power lines
before. It seems to me like these rodents fry fry fry on whatever they are frying on, until the circuit shorts.
It could be either that, or maybe they hit the circuit, short it, and get shot away if the muscles are not gripped around the electrical circuit.
The image for this article looks like glue was sprayed on the wall, and hair was lightly tossed on the glue for effects, while a flattened rat was
placed haphazardly in the middle of the hair explosion, away from any charred circuitry / un-insulated wires.
Besides the gaping 'wtf' expression on my face, maybe aircooled is onto something about banning rats, but maybe banning nuclear power plants that
allow rats in them in the first place. That or maybe having some quality standards in construction and a overseeing body with morals to make sure
these places are operating on the highest standards possible... But then again, what about the waste? Ah, whatever. enjoy whatever "life" is left..
