Japan nuclear plant data error was 'unacceptable'

The Japanese government has attacked the operator of a crippled nuclear plant for "unacceptable" mistakes. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) had said radiation levels were 10m times higher than normal before correcting the figure to 100,000 times.

Workers are battling to stop radiation leaks at the Fukushima plant, hit by a quake and tsunami over two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Japan has lifted a tsunami warning that was issued after another earthquake off its northern coast. The 6.5-magnitude quake struck at 0723 local time on Monday (2223 GMT Sunday), 109km (67 miles) east of the badly damaged port city of Sendai. It is not reported to have caused any injuries or damage.
