I see nothing changes much
Back in the early '80s, one of my fellow students got a placement at Winds^h^h^h^hT^hSellafield, came back after six months with all sorts of tales about the place. (And, the obligatory healthy glow)
The most relevant one here was that they had regular culls of the wildlife and feral animals (mention was made of it being mostly feral cats) within the site, this, he was told, was done to cover up the incidences of mutations and contaminated beasties..
Government Inspector: "Now what's all this we hear about problems with the local wildlife ?, we've heard talk about radioactive feral cats.."
Sellafield: "radioactive feral kitties?, what radioctive two headed feral kitties?"
Government Inspector: "Two headed?..."
Sellafield: "Ah shit, 'tis a fair cop, but at least they keep the carnivorous rabbits in check.."
Government Inspector: "Carnivorous Rabbits?.."
Sellafield: "Ah, shit again, did I say anything about the 40ft tall glowing telepathic seagull we call Barry that we keep hidden in the Reactor golfball?"
Government Inspector: "Err, Ok, so no problems with the local wildlife then."
(Government Inspector runs away *really fast*)
Sellafield: "Thank god for that, at least he didn't find out anything about the fieldmice.."
