WATCH: "Most significant stride ever" in Sellafield clean-up

Sellafield Ltd says it's taken its "most significant stride ever" in the 100 year mission to clean up the nuclear site.

Workers have removed historic nuclear fuel rods from the site's waste ponds cutting radioactivity levels in them by over two thirds. The operation has also brought forward the projected date for draining the pools completely by around twenty years. Ryan Dollard reports.
