Dome filled with debris of 43 nuke explosions ‘leaking radioactive waste into sea’

A concrete dome filled with the debris of 43 nuclear explosions could be leaking radioactive waste into the sea, it’s feared.

Experts fear the Enewetak Atoll in the South Pacific , where 30 megatons of weapons were tested, is dropping radioactive material into the world’s oceans.

Thousands of people, who now fear their health has been damaged, were involved in three-year clean-up operation, where radioactive material was dumped in a crater before being covered by the dome.

However, the crater wasn’t lined and concerns have been raised by islanders and veterans alike that the dome is leaking.
