Japan's Fukushima plant opened to media

Reporters in full protective clothing have been allowed inside the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan for the first time since it was crippled by an earthquake and tsunami in March.

The authorities have previously rejected requests by journalists to visit the plant, on the grounds that radiation levels were too high and it could hamper operations to tackle the crisis.

The media tour was accompanied by the head of the Fukushima plant, Masao Yoshida.
