I AM writing about the safety advice issued to islanders in the event of a leak from a nuclear submarine.

We are told by warmongering politicians that the current fleet is old and must be replaced at huge cost.

This week one broke down under the arctic ice. This does not inspire confidence in their general condition and safety.

The map in the Echo (March 20) indicates a circle of contamination than includes the main road.

A booklet will not protect the public if there is a leak.

Only protest and a council decision to make the area nuclear free will work.

The economic advantage to the owners of the Port are negligible compared with the loss of safety to thousands of residents.

A single roadway on and off is ideal for the prisons but a bad idea for nuclear accident evacuation.

A leaflet will protect no one, but protests will.
