“Radioactive Art”, which was first broadcast on radio 4 Thursday 2nd March, ends in an interview with Ele Carpenter  standing in a stone circle at the outskirts of the Sellafield Nuclear reprocessing facility in Cumbria.

The weather was glorious,  the action pictured above resulted in serious sunburn! As expected, we attracted the attention of the Nuclear Defence Constabulary who were very polite and extremely thorough in their background checks.
