The UK dumped nuclear waste in the North Atlantic from 1948 until 1982. The practice was banned worldwide by the UN as from 1994

not sure nuclear waste ever got 'dumped'

Nice picture of a good looking ship, also had an Atlantic Fisher (ex Sandgate) converted to dump nuclear waste via a moon-pool but I don't think she was ever used and later sold to become Arklow Beach.

cheers Bob, although I lived in Whitehaven for 4 years, I rarely got down to Barrow in daylight, it was usually evenings for a squash match !! So I was pleased to see her on a rare sunny day when I did visit.
