Japan tsunami homeless shelter amid nuclear fears

In the city of Sendai, survivors of Friday's earthquake and tsunami are not only having to cope with the aftershocks, but also fear exposure to radiation.

The disaster devastated Japan's north-east coast, with more than 3,000 confirmed dead and thousands missing.

Radiation levels have now fallen at Japan's earthquake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, located 60 miles from Sendai, but concerns remain after they earlier spiked to harmful levels.

The BBC's Damian Grammaticas has been speaking to people in the area.
