Tokyo Electric Power Company has made public video footage of a robot cleaning the inside of the No. 3 reactor building on Friday.

The footage was taken by a camera mounted on a second robot.

The footage shows the robot moving around the building and using a vacuum cleaner as it collected radioactive dust and debris.

The debris was then sent to drums outside the building through a 40-meter hose.

TEPCO says the vacuum collected enough dust and debris over a 5-hour period to fill 3 drums.
