Serco, the FTSE100 aviation-to-science service conglomerate, is the latest name tipped to bid for the £50m UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA). The Government announced plans to privatise the nuclear clean-up business last week, and British groups VT and Amec plus US giants CHM Hill and Fluor are also expected to look at UKAEA. A source said a general "shortage of nuclear engineers" would make UKAEA attractive.
