U.K. Plant Fined For Radiation Leaks

A Scottish nuclear plant operator was fined $273,000 last week for dumping solid nuclear waste in a public landfill, and for discharging contaminated water into effluent pipes that washed up on local beaches for more than 20 years.

Less than five hours after the fine was handed down, another suspected radioactive particle was found on a nearby beach, the BBC reports.
