Fukushima fish still contaminated by leaking radiation

Levels of radioactive contamination in fish caught off the east coast of Japan remain raised, official data shows.

It is a sign that the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant continues to be a source of pollution more than a year after it was devastated by the March 2011 earthquake. The operator of the plant says it cannot rule out the possibility that it may still be leaking radiation into the sea.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Japan.
