VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

NEW INSPECTIONS ARE TAKING PLACE AT THE FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR POWER STATION FOLLOWING REVELATIONS THAT RADIOACTIVE WATER HAS BEEN LEAKING FROM ONSITE STORAGE TANKS AND COLLECTING DEEP UNDERGROUND.

SOME EXPERTS SAY THE CONTAMINATED WATER MAY HAVE ALREADY REACHED THE COAST.

THESE NEW DISCOVERIES -- THE MOST SERIOUS TO CONFRONT THE CRIPPLED PLANT SINCE A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE TRIGGERED A NUCLEAR MELTDOWN IN 2011.

(nats, angry fisherman)

ANGER AND FRUSTRATION, SEEN CLEARLY ON THE FACES OF LOCAL FISHERMEN.

(nats apology/bowing)

TEPCO, THE PLANT'S EMBATTLED OPERATOR HAS APOLOGIZED FOR THE INCIDENT.

BUT THIS LATEST MISHAP HAS SHAKEN CONFIDENCE IN THEIR ABILITY TO MANAGE CLEAN-UP AND CONTAINMENT OPERATIONS, AND HAS DERAILED EFFORTS TO REBUILD THE REGION'S FISHERIES.

(nats chanting)

IT MAY ALSO THWART JAPAN'S BID TO HOST THE 2020 SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES.

(nats of drumming)

DESPITE EFFORTS BY OFFICIALS TO RESTORE PUBLIC CONFIDENCE.
