MSP demands answers from MoD over Dalgety Bay radioactive pollution


MSP Annabelle Ewing has demanded an explanation from the MoD after radioactive fragments were found on the beach at Dalgety Bay.

The Nationalist MSP was speaking out after a report by the Sunday Herald newspaper claimed that MoD officials refused to analyse material found in the area because of cancer fears.

Ms Ewing, who represents Mid Scotland and Fife, said: “We must have urgent action and answers from the Ministry of Defence over these shocking revelations that contradict assurances over the seriousness of this hazard.

“The MoD has consistently played down the possibility of health effects on members of the public from this contamination, but the department’s own scientists do not seem to share that confidence.”
