Dangerous radioactive water has been leaking from storage tanks at a damaged nuclear power station in Japan.

Officials found the leak at the Fukushima power station during a routine inspection. The power station was badly damaged by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 and had been shut down.

The radioactive water was leaking from one of the enormous tanks.

Water was pumped into the damaged reactors to cool them down – but some of this radioactive water has now escaped from storage containers.

Experts believe that as much as three hundred tonnes of radioactive water has leaked.

  2. I am doing an information report on the Japan Tsunami and this is good info. But they should quickly maintain it before catastrophic consequences take place.
