British nuclear leak under investigation

Officials at a nuclear plant in Britain are investigating a radioactive leak which contaminated two people.

They were working at the re-processing facility at Sellafield in Cumbriain north-west England when a bag containing a nuclear waste filter was damaged.

The two workers are still reporting for duty while being monitored for contamination.
