Frustration over nuclear archive

The nuclear archive could create up to 25 jobs in the area

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has been urged to push ahead with plans to build the UK's first national nuclear archive in Wick.

Trade unions in Caithness said they were unhappy with the apparent lack of progress of the 20m project.

They believe it will boost the local construction industry and create jobs.

The archive will house up to 30 million digital, paper and photographic records marking the history of the UK's civil nuclear industry since the 1940s.
