Event description

Description

Rob Edwards (researcher, journalist, and author) and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons UK publish a new report on the safety of the nuclear weapons convoys that routinely travel on British roads.

This report presents new research into local authorities' knowledge of and forward planning for an accident involving a nuclear weapon convoy and our own scenario modelling for the potential fallout from an accident both at a national level and locally in five case study areas: Birmingham, Preston, Newcastle, Glasgow, and Wetherby. At the launch we will also unveil the results of a national poll into the public’s knowledge and opinion of the convoys.

Other speakers include Professor Imti Choonara, University of Nottingham, and Margaret Downs, Nukewatch.

Teas and coffees served from 09.30.

The event will begin at 10.00 with a presentation on the report from Rob Edwards followed by short talks on nuclear weapon convoys and their potential health impacts. There will then be time for a Q&A with the audience.

We look forward to welcoming you.
