Greenpeace campaigners say that six Spanish nuclear plants that are now in disuse have not been properly shut down and dismantled. Taking down nuclear plants when their useful life ends and replacing them with renewable energy supplies would, as well as eradicating the health hazards they pose, create around 100,000 new jobs, according to the environmental lobby group.

Five provinces in Spain house the “disused” reactors based at Garoña and Miranda de Ebro (Burgos); L’Ametlla de Mar (Tarragona province); Gárgoles de Abajo (Guadalajara); Trujillo (Cáceres) and the Ayora-Cofrentes valley in the Valencia province.

Greenpeace staged a sponsored ‘zombie fun-run’ on Sunday ahead of Halloween in each of these towns and villages, although the race for Ayora-Cofrentes was held in Valencia city.
