U.K. Atomic Site to Get New Security Fence

A new security barrier is aimed at protecting the United Kingdom's largest atomic energy complex from possible assaults, the People newspaper reported on Sunday.

The 11-mile long fence at the Sellafield site is to cost nearly $8 million and would be in addition to barriers already in place at the nuclear plant, which houses the planet's biggest cache of plutonium. Additional law enforcement officials are also to be assigned to Sellafield.
