The construction of Berkeley nuclear power station began in 1956. Electricity generation started in 1962 and ran for 27 years, until 1989. In March 2012 the first five of the 310-tonne boilers were removed from the station. The trailer had 96 wheels and the full weight, with both locomotives, was 400 tonnes. (Gloucestershire Police Archives URN 2164) They were drawn, and pushed, by two heavy locomotives up into Berkeley town centre, then around the ring road to Sharpness, where they were loaded onto barges to take them to Sweden for decontamination and recycling. Although only a 4.5 mile journey, the first convoy took a good two hours, as trees had to be trimmed back, telephone cables removed, road signs and bollards likewise. This first trip was on Cheltenham Gold Cup day, 16/03/2012, Police Constable Simon Ross and Police Constable Martyn Hillier came away from the races to escort the load. This BMW motorcycle was an R1200RT demonstration model from BMW which was also trialling an on-bike ANPR system. The ANPR camera, a small black object pointing forward, can be seen just above the right hand blue light.
