Japan's only working nuclear reactor goes offline

Japan's only working nuclear reactor is going offline for a checkup, leaving the country without nuclear power for just the third time in more than four decades, and with no firm date for re-starting.

Japan's nuclear reactors provided close to a third of the country's electricity before the Fukushima disaster, and utilities have had to spend billions of dollars importing oil, gas and coal to make up for the shortfall.

The government and utilities are eager to get reactors up and running again, but opinion polls show most Japanese oppose re-starts and want to end reliance on atomic power.
