Windscale: The Story of “Britain’s Chernobyl” | Fascinating Horror

On the 10th of October, 1957, a fire broke out at the Windscale nuclear facility on the west coast of England. The flames sent vast quantities of radioactive material billowing up into the atmosphere. It was, and remains, the United Kingdom’s most serious nuclear accident… but at the time no residents from the surrounding area were evacuated, and most of the details of the fire were swiftly hushed up. It would be years before the true extent of the damage caused by the Windscale fire was revealed.

You think that’s bad? Imagine Pakistan.

I have never heard of a significant nuclear accident, broken arrow incident or theft of nuclear materials or weapon systems in Pakistan. It is inconceivable that none has occurred.
