Just near here...

This is in the same street as my doctor:
A building in Edinburgh has been cordoned off after several suspected radioactive packages were found inside, the fire service said.

Emergency services placed a cordon around the Regent Language Training School in Chester Street after the discovery of the three small packages.

It is believed the packages may contain radioactive material.

The Scotsman says they are from school (the sort of very minor radioactives teachers use to get a geiger counter to react & wake the kids up) & that they "may have been there for some time" (ie years)this seems to reflect more on the hysteria the word "nuclear" evokes than anything real.

Given they were marked as radioactive. 
Given they were in a school... 
Why, oh why was this declared a major incident? They'll be about as radioactive as a cup of tea - I suspect they're old physics sources, and 8 fire engines could have been off doing better things.
