Japan has announced that it will restart two nuclear reactors - the first to go back online since all the country's plants were closed following last year's Fukushima crisis.

Reactors at the Ohi plant in central Fukui prefecture will be switched on in three weeks.

Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has urged support for the move, saying Japan faces a summer of power shortages.

But widespread public opposition to nuclear power remains.
