Lost Nuke

An investigation by the army finds that all three had been on a camping trip within 3 days of being admitted to hospital. An army team is dispatched to the area of thick woodland near Hamsterley. The teenagers all die between the 16th and 18th of June.


13th June Army personnel with the help of Cleveland mountain rescue begin searching the thick woodland, by mid morning an area has been located with above normal radiation levels. At 4pm two army personnel discover a 2 metre wide 50cm deep crater in the woods, it is surrounded by an area of dead trees, this area has extremely high levels of radiation, the army personnel retreat to a safe distance and then seal off the area.


14th June Radiation specialists make their way into the sealed area, they begin digging in the small crater discovered the previous day. After digging for about and hour they start to discover shards of metal, by mid morning they have exposed a large metal object approximately 1 metre long and 50 cm diameter, it is producing vast amounts of radioactivity.

Photos are taken and a weapons specialist in Middlesbrough identifies the object as a 100 kilotonne nuclear warhead.

They are continuing works on surveying the bridge for possible future railway link although the bridge was designed for carrying loads of between 100 and 150 tonnes so a railway would be within structural limits.

Plans are that the central two lanes will be adapted to railway with the two outside lanes being renovated to carry road traffic, speed limits have already been set at 45 mph for both road and rail.

A lower decks will be renovated to be a foot bridge.

If the bridge is found to be totally structurally sound then it will be the longest single span suspension bridge in the British Isles and the second longest in the world behind the Nordic Unions East Great Belt bridge.

Works have also begun on a 15 mile side link between Habrough (on the Barton-Grimsby line) to the town of Scunthorpe in the west, it is hoped that it will be completed around the same time.

The next section of line to be refitted will run from Skegness to Boston in Newolland, this is a 20 mile section which could be completed by August 2011.

The next section of line will run from Grimsby to Skegness via Mablethorpe, this line does not exist at present and will have to be built from scratch, the 50 mile section will take approximately a year to build with work expected to start in September 2011.

Also if the locals are willing then the old line will be renovated and refitted from Scunthorpe, via Gainsborough to Retford and Worksop, however this line will not be started until the local area has joined with Newolland or another OBN nation.

26th June 2011

Renovation has begun on the mothballed Drax coal-fired power station, the Cleveland coal board has begun to reopen several coal mines in the Selby area to feed the power station. It is hoped that it will be operational by mid to late 2012.

Construction and renovation has also begun on old rail lines linking the mines with the power station.

Although the power station has six banks of electricity generators it is expected that only three will works at any one time, allowing maintenance on the other three. This means that once completed it will have a generating capacity of 2000 MW per year.

Other power stations to undergo renovation are Ferrybridge (1200MW) and Eggborough (1000MW) power stations these renovations will begin in late 2011.

When these power station come online not only will there be enough electricity for Cleveland but enough to send 500MW south to Newolland.

17th January 2012

After the team that has been assisting with the Lincolnshire assimilation project returns home they were debriefed by both the military leadership and the civilian government, of most interest is the state of the city of Doncaster.

Although Doncaster was claimed by Cleveland in 2005, no Cleveish presence was felt in the area until it was explored as part of the Lincolnshire Assimilation Project during the summer of 2011 it was found to be relatively intact, though abandoned for some time.

The leadership of the Church of Albion were greatly pleased that Doncaster Cathedral had survived almost intact, some windows had been broken but the majority of the structure was sound. It was decided that when the military sets up base in the city a group of 25 engineers and artisans will travel to Doncaster with them to help rebuild the Cathedral.

It was discussed for five days whether or not to re-inhabit the area, radiation in the area was described as light, however the areas closer to the River Don were classed as moderate, probably due to radiation washing down from the Sheffield/Rotherham nuke hits.

It was decided to set up a military barracks in the buildings around the old Corn Exchange, Wool Market and surrounding buildings. Their orders are to complete a more thorough exploration of the area taking radiation levels regularly to find areas of unhealthy radioactivity. 250 troops will be stationed in the city, they are due to arrive in Doncaster on the 1st May 2012.

If the area is found to be habitable then the branch line from Scunthorpe will be repaired and then possibly the branch line from Doncaster to Wakefield and Dewsbury and another one to Barnsley will also be repaired.
