This is information that, but for a Freedom of Information request, would have remained secret:
Two years ago, a burst pipe inside the Sizewell A station led to a huge leak from the pond used to cool thousands of nuclear fuel rods.
Sizewell lies in Suffolk, on the East coast of England. If the nuclear fuel rods had caught fire, the resulting radioactive plume could have landed on villages from Southwold and Dunwich in the North, to Thorpeness and Aldburgh in the South, and inland to Leiston and Saxmundum.
The leak was only found out by chance...
Yet the Government, in it's wisdom, said a prosecution would not be in the public interest.
Or maybe not in Gordon Brown's brother's interest.
