Fukushima residents doubt plans to rebuild

Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, has vowed to draw up a new five-year plan to speed up the rebuilding of the area of Fukushima after the tsunami disaster four years ago.

It caused meltdowns at the region's nuclear plant and led to the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

A devastating earthquake set off the tsunami killing nearly 20,000 people and leaving thousands homeless.

Many families have now decided never to return and have started life elsewhere.
