“BNFL admitted to underestimating occupational radiation doses in company records, including those of men who had worked on the exposed top of the Sellafield plutonium piles. When these errors were discovered they did not follow the advice of their Head of Health and Safety and put a note in the records to that effect. They didn’t bother to reassess the historic doses which they knew to be wrong.”
