Scientists have unveiled robots which they hope will help clean up the Fukushima nuclear power plant, damaged in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Leaked radiation from the nuclear plant in Japan means it's still too dangerous for workers to go near it.

But one of the new items hoping to help is a robotic suit that protects the person inside from harmful radiation as well as allowing them to lift weights of up to 60kg.
