The chairman of Pembrokeshire CC has called on backers of a scheme to store nuclear waste near Fishguard to withdraw it immediately following the publication of a House of Lords report.
The Western Mail (p7) reports that Alwyn Luke believes the Anglo-Irish consortium Omega Pacific's plans to store waste in a former munitions depot at Trecwn were now futile.
The report by the science and technology committee recommends a deep storage solution to Britain's nuclear waste problem.
Mr Luke said: 'In view of the report's decision to plump for the final solution of deep underground storage, it would appear as if Omega's plans for Trecwn are now hopeless. Trecwn's shallow surface tunnels do not meet this requirement at all.'
