Westminster 2005 Election   Alan Jamieson
Labour Candidate Looks In At Dounreay
NEW GENERATION: Labour's prospective parliamentary candidate in Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross Alan Jamieson meets UKAEA's Celestine Cheong and Gavin Coppins, who are among a new era of graduates in environmental sciences drawn to Dounreay by the challenge of cleaning up the fast reactor experiment. They are pictured here explaining the ground-breaking research being carried out to ensure environmental data for Doureay, including that associated with the legacy of particles in the marine environment, is available for analysis and communication to site regulators and the public.

Gavin has recently returned from an international conference on radioactive waste in Tuscon, Arizona, where a paper on the particles programme was one of the highlights. Mr Jamieson also saw the progress being made to clean out and dismantle the Prototype Fast Reactor during his fact-finding visit to Dounreay on March 21.
