UK nuclear plant orders employees to stay home over radiation
The United Kingdom’s largest nuclear plant ordered thousands of workers to stay at home Friday after recording increased levels of radioactivity, its operator said.

The Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site, in Cumbria, northwest England, told all non-essential employees not to come to work after the elevated levels were picked up by a monitor at the north end of the site.
