Sellafield is a spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. They recently lost their contract to reprocess fuel rods for Japan due to the fact that they had faked quality assurance checks on a batch that they (Sellafield) sent to them (Japan).

Because of their incredible lack of care and attention to detail they were placed under investigation by the DTi and their current Chief Exec was forced to tender his resignation (I believe there were some people from middle management and shop floor that were subsequently fired).

Lots of jokes are made about Sellafield, if you're a Simpsons fan you can work out most of them; glowing kids, fish that talk, cows with 4 legs(!).

I've only noded this just to coincide with my receipe, so feel free to improve on what I've written.
