The 100,000-year nuclear waste site
Arguments over nuclear waste disposal have been raging for decades, especially in Cumbria where the search continues for a site suitable for storing waste for tens of thousands of years.
Nuclear and scientific experts are disagreeing about geological issues and, combined with Cumbrian public concerns at having an underground repository for nuclear waste, the dilemma continues.
Cumbria has volunteered to consider housing waste in the county - and nationally, it is currently the only option.
But experts say the way in which site selection is being carried out is very wrong.
