Prior to clearance and cleaning for the Games of 2012, the Stadium Island contained many varied industrial buildings. Perhaps one of the more unusual and least known ones was the nuclear reactor. Shortly after the Games were awarded to London in July 2005, The Guardian ran a piece addressing MPs concerns over nulcear radiation contamination:
The tiny reactor, with a core no larger than a bucket, was the first to be built for a UK university. It was commissioned in 1966 for the department of nuclear engineering at Queen Mary College and was deactivated in 1982.
It was used for undergraduate experiments and postgraduate projects.
Walk down Marshgate Lane on Stratford Marsh and the huge empty building, divided into two hangars, still stands. Part of it is used by Bywaters for waste disposal. Behind is the studio for the television show Bad Girls.
The reactor was decommissioned under supervision by the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate, the college said. "The reactor was exceptionally small ... and produced virtually no energy.
"Decommissioning staff were able to stand inside the reactor void with no protective clothing. During decommissioning, the biological shield was removed by a nuclear consultancy, and the core was dismantled by staff on-site according to NII safety guidelines.
"Following the completion of the decommissioning process, the work was approved and verified, and Queen Mary's licence was officially de-registered by the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate in November 1983.
"There are absolutely no ongoing health implications."
Jean McSorley, senior adviser on Greenpeace's nuclear campaign, said: "In our view there's nothing to worry about."
