I hope Hitachi Ltd. will give up on its attempts to build a nuclear power station at Wylfa in Wales (“Hitachi looks to build nuke plant in Britain” in the April 7 edition).

I live on the island of Ynys Mon where the station would be located. I am deeply concerned about the possible disastrous effects which any incident releasing radioactivity would have. Anything from a human error, terrorist attack, plant malfunction to a Fukushima-type disaster doesn’t bear thinking about.
