London: Britain's Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant was given the all- clear after "elevated" levels of radioactivity were detected. The plant in northern England had told all staff except for essential workers to stay home after its monitoring system picked up higher-than- normal radiation readings overnight. But operators Sellafield Ltd later said the higher readings were "naturally occurring background radon".
