Over the edge

As PN was preparing to go to press, we received an unexpected notice from Reading-based Nuclear Information Service, which monitors UK nuclear weapons systems: ‘It is with regret that the Board of the Nuclear Information Service (NIS) have taken the decision to part company with our Director Pete Wilkinson. We would like to thank Pete for his efforts over the previous 18 months and wish him all the best in the future.’

Pete Wilkinson, a co-founder of Friends of the Earth and of Greenpeace, was named director of NIS in December 2013.
