Radiation levels at nuclear plant now harmful government says

Radiation from Japan's quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has reached harmful levels the government says.

The warning comes after the plant was rocked by a third blast which appears to have damaged one of the reactors' containment systems for the first time.

If it is breached there are fears of more serious radioactive leaks.
