Nuclear plant staff evacuated as smoke rises from Japanese reactor

There were no reports of any explosions.

Smoke was this morning seen rising from the Number 3 reactor at the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.

Staff were evacuated from the area around the power plant and all work has been suspended after officials said the smoke was coming from an area where a core of spent nuclear fuel was being stored.

A joint task force set up between the government and the Tokyo Electric Company, which owns the site, was still trying to find a cause for the smoke.
