Dounreay radioactive waste storage vaults constructed

Construction workers have just finished digging and blasting out two of the biggest holes in the ground in Scotland.

The work is part of the first phase of a project to build a series of huge vaults which will contain all the low-level radioactive waste from the demolition of the Dounreay nuclear plant.

BBC Scotland's Craig Anderson has been to the site on the Caithness coast.
