McCartney meets N-disaster victims

Sir Paul McCartney has welcomed families who were forced to leave their homes as a result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster to a concert in Tokyo.

The musician invited 10 people who had been displaced by the meltdown at the Japanese power plant, which occurred as a result of the earthquake and tsunami in the region two and a half years ago.

Around 160,000 people are still unable to return home after being moved from the disaster zone due to safety fears.

Sir Paul invited the group, including a couple in their 50s, a 30-year-old man and his 20-year-old niece from the evacuation area to a performance at the Tokyo Dome, which was part of his Out There tour.

He met them - all keen fans - beforehand, shaking hands and giving words of encouragement as he listened to their stories.

The party also included two pupils and a teacher from the Iwaki Municipal Middle School, which has been taking in youngsters who have had to leave areas with high radiation levels, and a couple whose shop and house were destroyed by the tsunami and have since had a baby.

Sir Paul said: "At this time, we are focused on a lot of the problems that Japan has had, particularly in the last year or two. So, I always like to think that our concerts can have a healing effect, that they can help people through crises."
