The Royal Navy is to stop using shells containing depleted uranium because of US fears about their safety. The Navy has used DU rounds in an anti- missile system for more than 10 years. The system was bought from the US which has now replaced its DU rounds on board ships with tungsten. This is much more expensive but not radioactive. Fourteen British warships still have depleted uranium rounds which will all be phased out by 2003.
