But on checking, your article is from 2003

You trust government over greenpeace? Okay

Figure 2.5 also provides trend information over time (2004
2014) for a number of other permitted radionuclides
and activity concentrations in food. Liquid discharges
of uranium radionuclides steadily decreased (and other
discharges to a lesser extent) over the whole period, whilst
technetium-99 discharges generally decreased overall
(but peaked in 2012). Caesium-137 concentrations in
flounder and salmon showed variations between years
and this was most likely due to natural changes in the
environment. Concentrations of technetium-99 in shrimps
generally declined over the whole period, consistent with
the reduction in technetium-99 discharges from Sellafield.


So sellafield discharges had influence, and is diminishing. But as you can find, dna damage from radiation occurs at any dose.
