Update – Prosecution of Sellafield Ltd

20 July, 2018

Court proceedings commenced today (Friday, 20 July) in relation to ONR’s prosecution of Sellafield Ltd for offences under Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act (1974).

During a short hearing at Workington Magistrates Court, Cumbria, the case was committed to Carlisle Crown Court, scheduled for 17 August, 2018. No plea was entered during the hearing.

The matter remains subject to active court proceedings so ONR cannot comment any further at this stage for legal reasons.


This court hearing has now been re-scheduled for Thursday, 16 August, at 2pm, at Carlisle Crown Court.
