Fukushima 'could take months' to bring under control

Officials in Japan have warned it could take several months to bring the crippled Fukushima nuclear power station under control as the bodies of two workers killed by the 11 March tsunami are found.

The plant has been leaking radiation since the earthquake and tsunami struck more than three weeks ago.

The latest challenge for the authorities is to stop highly radioactive water from gushing into the ocean.
