Prof Cox will assist Baroness Verma, of the Department of Energy and Climate Change, as she formally opens The Sellafield Story at The Beacon in Whitehaven on May 30.

He said: “I'm really looking forward to coming to Whitehaven to visit the museum.

“Science and engineering are vitally important and Whitehaven has a strong association with both through its historic links with the nuclear industry. Inspiration is the first step towards lifelong fascination, and I can't wait to see just how inspiring the exhibition is.”

The new look Beacon - reopening following a pledge of £1.6 million over five years from Sellafield Ltd - will have one floor dedicated to the Sellafield story.

The official opening event starts at 10am, for invited guests, with the museum open to the public from 1pm.

The first 75 people in the queue ahead of the museum opening to the public at 1pm, will have the opportunity to attend an exclusive lecture from Professor Cox.

Entrance to the lecture will be on a first come first served basis as seating is limited.
