BBC NEWS | Politics | Nuclear plant 'quake ban' lifted

An outright ban on locating new nuclear power stations in areas of the UK which are susceptible to earthquakes has been lifted by the government.

The move was the only major change to the siting criteria, which also include restrictions on proximity to towns and certain military facilities.

Ministers said the UK's earthquake risk was "modest" and power stations could be built to withstand any activity.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
