High levels of a toxic radioactive isotope have been found in groundwater at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant, its operator says.

Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) said tests showed strontium-90 was present at 30 times the legal rate.

The radioactive isotope tritium has also been detected at elevated levels.
