Radioactive water leak at Fukushima plant

One hundred tonnes of highly contaminated water has leaked out of a tank at the Daiichi nuclear plant.

    About 100 tonnes of highly radioactive water has leaked from a tank at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant.

    An official for the Tokyo Electrical Company said the radioactive water overflowed after a valve was left open by mistake and sent too much contaminated water into a separate holding area.
