Scientists are continuing work at a beach where highly radioactive material was discovered.
Experts are conducting a “systematic clearance” of a 150-metre stretch of beach in Dalgety Bay, Fife, where a lump of contaminated metal was discovered a few days ago. The object was 10 times more contaminated than any found before at the beach.
The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (Sepa) said 17 more particles were discovered yesterday, although the environmental watchdog said the latest finds were not thought to be as significant as those from earlier in the week.
