Buildings at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station in Ukraine – the largest in Europe – have been damaged after it was hit by shelling.

The attack has prompted world leaders to accuse Russia of acting recklessly – the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it could “directly threaten the safety of all of Europe”.

The UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), says that none of the safety systems at the plant were affected, and there was no release of radioactive material.
