German RWE Npower plans to turn picturesque Radley Lakes in Oxfordshire into a fenced-off wasteland by replacing the water in this local beauty spot with toxic ash slurry from nearby Didcot Power Station. If this goes ahead unchecked, it will set a dangerous precedent for further destruction of local environments.
