I will fly to Marseille this week and heard in the news that there was an accident at a nuclear complex in southern France. Is there any danger of traveling to this area?
The accident, in an oven at a nuclear waste reprocessing plant, was near Nimes - which is about 120km from Marseille.
The French nuclear regulatory authority (ASN) says there was no leak of radiation inside or outside the facility. A company spokesman described it as "an industrial accident, not a nuclear accident".
Sounds like you'll be safe.
