Night Security Lacking At Swedish Power Plant

Published torsdag 29 maj 2008 kl 12.36

The security barrier at Sweden’s Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant is often unmanned at night according to an investigation carried out by the area’s local newspaper.

The Oskarshamn newspaper sent a reporter to watch the barrier and found that the two guards working the nightshift after 6, often left their post unguarded.

The news comes following last week’s detention of two welders who were arrested after a random check detected traces of a potentially explosive substance on the handle of a plastic bag one of the men was carrying.

It then emerged that both men were searched purely by chance and unlike Sweden’s two other nuclear power plants, didn’t check everyone entering the plant using hi tech security equipment demanded by the country’s Nuclear Safety Inspectorate.

The two men arrested were later released.
