Trace amounts of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant were detected in Glasgow and Oxfordshire, the source is suspected to be the radiation leaks caused by the fires and explosions at the plant.

Although this does highlight how big a problem the disaster is health officials stress there is no health risks to this “miniscule” amount. This is a reassuring demonstration to the united kingdom that any threat of contamination can easily be detected by the systems in place.

The Health Protection Agency talk of a suspected “rise in the coming days and weeks” but Britain can breathe a breath of fresh air as it would be “below any level that could cause harm to public health“.
