According to the BBC, there is a radiation alert in an Edinburgh school...
"Emergency services were called to the Regent Language Training School in Chester Street at about 1900 GMT after the discovery."
So, it's a school... I suspect it may have been a school before it was a "languages school", whatever in the hell that is...
"The packages were found inside a cupboard, which was being cleaned. They had markings indicating they contained radioactive materials."
Riiiiiight. So we have clearly marked containers of something radioactive. What's the problem? Pop out yer Geiger counter, and see if there's an increase in background radiation, if it's safe, get it signed over to someone who can use it or dispose of it.
"The fire service and police have launched a procedure called National Arrangements for Incidents Involving Radiation.
Eight fire engines and 28 fire service personnel were attending the incident. "
We're paying for this, and they are taking the piss. Again. It's not a full scale radioactive (booga booga booga) incident, it's likely a couple of old physics related sources for showing kids Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation in the lab. If it was something untoward, do you think they'd be clearly marked as radioactive? How the hell did this become a full scale newsworthy incident? Who are these people?
