Japan's huge post-tsunami clean up continues

Officials say process set to take up to three years following twin natural disasters.

    It has been months since Japan's devastating earthquake and tsunami, but officials say the clean-up work has only just begun, and is likely to go on for years.

    Reconstruction cannot begin until the rubble and rubbish swept up by the massive natural disaster are first cleared away.
