10,000,000 times normal radiation spike at Fukushima 'mistake' - officials

Fukushima plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. claims that an earlier measurement showing a huge spike in radiation levels at the stricken Japanese nuclear complex was 'a mistake'. According to TEPCO spokesman, water testing showing 10 million times higher in radioactivity than normal was 'not credible'.

Meanwhile, three workers have already been exposed to dangerous materials in the continuing battle to avert catastrophe in the wake of the earthquake tragedy which destroyed large parts of the country. The official number of those killed by the quake and tsunami stands at over 10,000, with many more homeless or missing. But Fukushima remains the biggest concern - with the ongoing possibility of nuclear meltdown.
