ANTI-NUCLEAR campaigners have staged a protest outside a temporary clinic set up to distribute anti-radiation tablets to people living or working closest to the Sizewell nuclear site.

The tablets, for use in an emergency, are being offered to 180 households and the permanent employees of four firms within the 1.5 mile radius emergency planning zone.

Last night's protest was organised by the Shut Down Sizewell Campaign which is calling for the emergency zone to be extended and the anti-radiation pills distributed to thousands of other residents throughout East Anglia.
