Japan earthquake: Nuclear fears impact Tokyo fish market

Japan's nuclear crisis has spread fear in Tokyo as people either leave or stay indoors, turning bustling markets into near ghost towns.

Japan has raised the alert level at its quake-damaged nuclear plant from four to five on a seven-point international scale of atomic incidents.

International SOS is advising people within 80km of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to evacuate the area.

Tim Wilcox visited Tokyo's famous fish market, usually a bustling hub, now almost deserted.
