> You'd assume that safety limits exist because they're needed to keep

> was announced that a key safety limit at Dungeness nuclear power
> station may be changed so its lifetime can be extended. [1]
>
> Graphite bricks in the reactor are about to breach safety levels and
> the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) would have had to prosecute or
> even shut down the plant. But instead, the regulators are considering
> a request from EDF energy, who run the station, to simply change the safety limit.
