Nuclear experts have been meeting to look at ways of improving the safety of nuclear power plants.

The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency has been focussing on how to improve the response to a possible nuclear accident .

It follows the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan in 2011.

More than 100,000 people were evacuated from the areas surrounding the facility as a result of concerns over exposure to radioactive elements released from damaged reactors.
