Sellafield nuclear bosses 'to admit contamination'
Sellafield bosses have said they intend to admit a health and safety breach after a worker was "contaminated".
The firm which runs the Cumbrian nuclear processing plant was charged by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR).
A worker suffered "personal contamination" on 5 February 2017, Carlisle Crown Court heard.
Sellafield Ltd is yet to enter a plea but has indicated its intention to admit the charge.
A spokesman said: "We can confirm we have written to Carlisle Crown Court to indicate our intention to plead guilty.
"For legal reasons we are unable to comment further on details of the case."
A sentencing hearing is due to take place in front of a judge at the crown court on 2 April.
An ONR spokesman added: "This matter remains subject to active court proceedings so ONR cannot comment any further at this stage for legal reasons."
