Nuclear terror alert as UK police arrest five men at Sellafield

Tuesday, 3 May 2011

UK counter terrorism officers have arrested five men near Sellafield nuclear plant.  The men, all aged in their 20s, were filming when stopped by Civil Nuclear Constabulary officers. They are all Bangladeshi and were travelling in one vehicle.  They were detained under section 41 of the Terrorism Act after a routine vehicle check close to the west Cumbria facility yesterday. All five men are believed to have been living in London.

A Cumbria Police spokesman said: "At 4.32pm yesterday, Monday 2 May, police officers from the Civil Nuclear Constabulary conducted a stop check on a vehicle close to the Sellafield site in West Cumbria.  "As a result, police officers from Cumbria Constabulary arrested five men from London, all aged in their 20s, under section 41 of the Terrorism Act.  "They were taken to police custody in Carlisle overnight and are being transported to Manchester this morning. The investigation is being led by the North West Counter Terrorism Unit."

A road closure affected the area for a short period of time.

Raids follow Sellafield arrests

Counter-terror detectives have carried out a string of raids as part of investigations into arrests at the Sellafield nuclear site. Four houses in east London were swooped on by Scotland Yard after information was passed to them by Greater Manchester Police. The warrants were executed as officers continued to question five suspects, all from London, under the Terrorism Act.  The arrests are not believed to have been intelligence-led.

Counter-terrorism arrest made near UK nuclear site
Published: 7:50AM Wednesday May 04, 2011 Source: Reuters

British police said they had arrested five men close to a nuclear reprocessing plant in northwest England under counter-terrorism laws.  The arrests were made after Prime Minister David Cameron urged Britain to remain vigilant against potential reprisals following the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan by U.S. forces.  Police said they were unaware of any link between the arrests and bin Laden's death.

"At this stage we are not aware of any connection to recent events in Pakistan," Cumbria police said in a statement.  The men were arrested on Monday after officers conducted a stop check on a vehicle near the Sellafield site in Cumbria.  The men are all aged in their 20s and from London.  A spokesman for the police's North West Counter Terrorism Unit declined to comment on media reports the men had been filming the site.

"There were suspicions from the Civil Nuclear Constabulary that led to some arrests. There were some suspicions about them near to the perimeter fence," he said.  A police counter terrorism source said the arrests were not preplanned. "The local officers felt there was enough to arrest them. It's a case of seeing if there is anything to it."  Police held the men under section 41 of the Terrorism Act, which allows officers to arrest people suspected of terrorist offences and hold them for 48 hours without charge.

The men were being transferred to the northern English city of Manchester to be questioned by counter-terrorism officers.  Local police were alerted by officers from the Civil Nuclear Constabulary, a specialist force which provides protection for civil nuclear licensed sites.  Fifty-two people were killed in London in 2005 when al-Qaeda inspired suicide bombers blew up underground trains and a bus.

The Sellafield site, in operation since the 1940s, includes a number of nuclear fuel reprocesssing facilities and waste treatment plants.  Sellafield is owned by Nuclear Management Partners, a consortium of American engineering company URS , British engineering firm Amec and French nuclear reactor maker Areva . It was operating as normal on Tuesday.

Nowhere in the reports of this arrest do they mention any crime committed by these guys.
We can assume their crime is being brown-skinned people, all in one van, near a nuke plant.
A crime of one particular race violating unwritten geographic boundary laws...
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

They were filming . . . well, were they filming the plant? OR THE BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE THAT SURROUNDS IT?

I have actually been around this place on a tour - when i was younger, it was "interesting"

There were check points like every 100 meters inside the place , and at that time it produced electricity - still does as far as i know.

They pointed at one place and said it was the "core" and said no one could go near it - i looked up a bit and saw windows and thought - why would you have windows? so i asked the guide - got no response - then i saw people in there all suited up !

I suspect they make weapons grade material, as well as "processing" spend fuel. Its right near the sea - its isolated, it would be a easy target probably - but as i said it is in the lake district which is stunningly beautiful  . . .

who knows. Could have been more MI5 recruited patsys on a recon - like the 7/7/ "bombers".



Also - how randomly stuck together is that paragraph:

The men were being transferred to the northern English city of Manchester to be questioned by counter-terrorism officers.  Local police were alerted by officers from the Civil Nuclear Constabulary, a specialist force which provides protection for civil nuclear licensed sites.  Fifty-two people were killed in London in 2005 when al-Qaeda inspired suicide bombers blew up underground trains and a bus.
