About 12 tonnes of water contaminated with radiation has leaked from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

Plant operator TEPCO believes most of the water flowed into the Pacific Ocean. It says the contaminated water leaked from a treatment pipe.

The water contained radioactive strontium which tends to accumulate in bones and can cause leukaemia.

It is the second time in two weeks there has been a leak of contaminated water from the nuclear plant, prompting yet another apology from TEPCO.

About 120 tonnes of radioactive water leaked at the plant’s water decontamination system last month and about 80 litres seeped into the ocean, according to TEPCO.
