The presence of dangerous radioactive particles has been confirmed also in the Czech Republic.

Air quality stations across the continent detected traces of radioactive Iodine-131 in January – but scientists are yet to work out where the particles came from.

The presence of dangerous radioactive particles have been detected also in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain.


It is difficult to pinpoint where the radioactive material came from, but it’s possible that the particles could have come from an incident at a nuclear reactor.

Iodine-131 can can contaminate food and after it is swallowed it accumulates in the thyroid.

Authorities have not raised any health alarm after detecting the particles, claiming that the risk is very low.
