A Fife beach may have to be partially covered in concrete to seal radiation hotspots.<br />
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency said 39 radioactive items were detected in September at Dalgety Bay.<br />
It said a dose would be low for an adult, but would potentially be significant for a child. The contamination is thought to be the legacy of aircraft waste that was incinerated and then dumped as landfill to help reclaim some coastline.<br />
