Dounreay radioactive waste storage vaults constructed

The work is part of the first phase of a project to build a series of huge vaults which will contain all the low-level radioactive waste from the demolition of the Dounreay nuclear plant.

BBC Scotland's Craig Anderson has been to the site on the Caithness coast.
