Three councils in Cumbria are due to vote on whether to continue with plans for a £12bn underground storage facility for nuclear waste.

Radioactive material is currently stored above ground in various sites around the UK.

Opponents say burying it poses a huge safety risk, but supporters say it will bring jobs and investment.
