An Mixed Oxide (mox) pellet is being inspected at Sellafield nuclear plant in North England, 26 September 2002. The 3,8 square km site on the Cumbrian coast produces MOX , nuclear fuel for electricity as well as storing nuclear waste from several countries around the world. Local and international environment groups have called for the closure of the reactors claiming that the radiation levels are rising in the area due to pollution from the site into the sea as well as security concerns after the September 11 attack on New York.
