Fukushima: Japan may dump Radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean

Japan’s environment minister says contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant may have to be released into the ocean because storage space will run out in 2022.

More than a million tonnes of water that has been used to cool melted reactors is kept in giant tanks.

Fisherman’s groups are strongly opposed to the idea but many scientists say it would pose a low risk.

The government said a final decision had not yet been taken.
