It’s the seagulls that you want to watch out for…

The media frequently portrays the nuclear industry in a negative light.  The general public tend to base their opinions on the information they have readily available – i.e. newspapers, Internet etc. 

However, in an area of the country like West Cumbria, where almost everybody has some sort of connection to Sellafield, this is not the case. 

People from this area have grown up with and seem proud to be associated with the nuclear industry - The words ‘Sellafield’ and ‘nuclear’ do not cause Whitehaven locals to run to the hills!!   

The general opinion of the nuclear industry in West Cumbria, is positive and very different to something you might read elsewhere in a local newspaper. 

In my opinion, the only scary thing about Sellafield is definitely the seagulls!! Now that the sun has come back out, they seem to have taken over!  You will never ever see me attempting to eat my lunch outside!!!  

Seagulls from 'Finding Nemo' - very similar to the birds on the Sellafield site :)
