    A group of more than 200 Japanese pensioners is volunteering to tackle the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima power station.
    The "Skilled Veterans Corps", as they call themselves, is made up of retired engineers and other professionals, all over the age of sixty.
    One of the group, Yasuteru Yamada, told the BBC's Roland Buerk that they should be facing the dangers of radiation, not the young.
