Britain's biggest nuclear reprocessing plant said on Friday it had detected raised levels of radioactivity and ordered all non-essential staff to stay at home.The plant, about 300 miles (480 km) northwest of London, employees over 10,000 and says it is the largest nuclear site in Europe.It was the site of Britain's worst nuclear accident when a fire broke out in one of its reactors in 1957 . Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron has thrown his weight behind building new nuclear power stations as a way to replace ageing coal and nuclear power plants.The government last year signed a $26 billion deal to build a new nuclear plant in southwest England with the support of France's EDF and two Chinese partners.
