The company which operates the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan has released new footage showing the inside of the first floor at the number one reactor at the plant.

The pictures captured by a robot camera show some damage to the inside of the building but no water leaks.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company has said it may take the rest of the year to bring the nuclear plant back under control.

It is now installing fans with filters to help reduce radiation levels inside the building and is injecting water into the reactor to try to cool the damaged reactors.
