Minister for the Environment Dick Roche has announced that the Thorp nuclear reprocessing plant at Sellafield is to close.

Mr Roche said he was assured by his British counterpart Alan Johnson at a meeting yesterday that the controversial facility will be shut down in 2010.

The safety of the facility, which opened in 1994, has been called into question following a series of leaks there.
