Three years ago an earthquake and tsunami destroyed the power and cooling systems at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant triggering meltdowns. Although the plant is now stabilised, the clean-up operation is facing an increased problem with the accumulation of radioactive water.

As part of the three-year anniversary of the meltdown members of the media were taken on a tour of the crippled power plant. A member of the media is pictured here wearing a protective suit and a mask while visiting the suppression chamber in the basment of the No. 5 reactor building of the  nuclear power plant in Okuma, Fukushima prefecture, northeastern Japan.
