Around 150 children passed through the doors of Torness power station’s visitor centre last week as part of its Christmas Cracker open learning week. As well as touring the station the pupils from Loretto RC Primary in Musselburgh, Tweedmouth  Middle School in Berwick-upon-Tweed and Pirniehall Primary in Edinburgh were able to get up close to one of the on-site fire engines, take part in fire extinguisher training and had the opportunity to learn about radiation protection. The children were able to try on the protective coveralls that workers use in some of the radiation controlled areas.
