Poisoning fears as Japan plans to use RADIOACTIVE Fukushima soil to build roads

The country’s Environment Ministry wants to use the radiation-tainted material to rebuild a number of roads in the region that was devastated by a tsunami in 2011.

But the proposal has sparked fury among residents over fears they could be poisoned by the soil.

A briefing about the plans on Thursday saw angry scenes erupt, with locals in the city of Nihonmatsu yelling about how the roads will be “contaminated”.

Authorities have been desperately trying to convince people that it will be safe, saying the soil will be buried under clean earth that will “block” any harmful radiation.
