* 3,000 evacuated from area
* Pressure rises to 1.5 times normal level
* Experts warn the situation ‘could turn grave’

Japanese authorities will release radioactive vapour into the atmosphere in a bid to prevent a nuclear power plant from exploding after its cooling system failed following today’s massive earthquake.

The country’s nuclear safety agency says pressure inside the reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant has risen to 1.5 times the level considered normal. To reduce the pressure, slightly radioactive vapour will be released.

Officials have said the radioactive element in the vapour that will be released would not affect the environment or human health.
