In January I said in this blog that RAF/RNAS Pulham provides a typical example of a site potentially contaminated with Radium.
It is now clear from a press report that Radium contamination from past defence activities is present on the site.
It was inquiries made by Milcon Research and Consulting made to the Local Council that in part prompted the Council to look into the issue of Radium contamination at RAF/RNAS Pulham.
It was also clear the response MOD made to an FOI request that the MOD held no information that would help identify if Radium was present on the site.
It is also clear that there are many more sites such as Pulham where radioactive contaminates and other contaminates are present and may pose a risk to human health and the environment. But that the MOD has long since lost records that would identify such sites.
