Flanders: nuclear reactor has "thousands of cracks"

Reactor number 3 at Doel nuclear power plant, near Antwerp, has not just one but probably thousands of cracks and cannot be restored.

[FANC Inspector Willy De Roovere] said the cracks are parallel to the surface of the walls and pose no immediate threat but the large number has left him concerned.

He said that permanent closure of the reactor is all but certain.
