The concourse of a stadium is now home for 2000 people.

They were evacuated from towns close to the damaged nuclear power station in Fukushima, as radiation started to leak from the crippled reactor buildings.

The people have clothing, food and shelter but they also want information from the government about the situation at home.

At the Tokyo fish market, it's much quieter than usual.

One seller told us business was down 60 per cent.

That figure could get worse with news that more radiation has leaked into the ocean near the power plant.

Tests showed the level was more than 1200 times above the legal limit.

At the moment, the government says Japanese fish is safe to eat.
