Pete Wilkinson from Suffolk advises the government on nuclear issues and he's telling Heart the situation in japan should soon be under control.

"They should be able to get it under control within a matter of days I would hope"

He says because of how hot the plants are getting, they either had to tell people to stay inside, or leave their homes altogether:

"Staying inside stops you getting immediate whole body doses from what is in the atmosphere but ultimately if the situation deteriorates and get's worse, then you have to evacuate"
