It is now some seven years since the nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi. Many reports have been written about it, including a 1000 page authoritative report by the IAEA , and numerous lessons identified; but, have we got to the root cause of the problem and found a way of addressing this lesson. Professor Mike Weightman will explore this question based on his own experience of helping the UK to respond in the immediate aftermath, leading the IAEA expert fact finding mission to Fukushima Daiichi in May/June 2011, and helping the Japanese to decommission the site.
