A big study of nuclear workers has suggested an unexpectedly strong link between radiation exposure and heart disease.

The study, published yesterday, analysed health records and radiation doses for 65,000 people employed at four nuclear sites - Sellafield, Capenhurst and Springfields, in north-west England, and Chaplecross in south-west Scotland - between 1946 and 2005."
