Radioactive metal found on Scots beach


A SCOTTISH beach has been condoned off after a lump of radioactive metal was found on the shore.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) found the material at Dalgety Bay beach on Saturday and says the beach is giving them “cause for concern”.

The radioactive material was removed yesterday (wed) and experts say it is 10 times more radioactive than any material found at the site previously.

Sepa are now examining the material in a lab.

They plan to meet with the Scottish Government and discuss permanently cordoning off parts of the beach
