Two contaminated after nuclear incident

Two workers at the Petten nuclear research plant were contaminated with radioactive strontium after an accident in a laboratory in May 2006, it emerged on Thursday.

The incident is mentioned in the Dutch nuclear service’s annual report. However, the service says the risks to the long term health of the workers are marginal. The laboratory has remained closed since the incident.
