The Lake District could become a 'dumping ground' for the nuclear industry, environmentalists fear, after the Government failed to rule out Englandís largest national park to bury radioactive waste.

The problem of where to store nuclear waste has dogged the British Government since the first power stations were built in the 1950s.

At the moment the waste is stored temporarily on site but as the country decommissions the nine power stations currently running, pressure is building to find a permanent solution deep underground.

The Coalition has already said more nuclear power stations can be built on eight sites and wants to have deep geological storage in place by 2040.
