This report presents new research into local authority and rescue services' knowledge and forward planning for an accident involving a nuclear 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.
