Radioactive waste swamps Japan sewage plants

Environmental experts warn of new crisis over build up of contaminated sewage far from Fukushima plant.

    Environmental experts in Japan are warning of new fallout from the country's nuclear crisis.

    Radioactive waste is piling up at several sewerage plants, well away from the crippled Fukushima reactor.

    Months after the tsunami and earthquake that triggered the nuclear meltdown, the government still has no policy on what to do with the waste.
