In the early hours of April 26 1986, an explosion ripped through the Chernobyl power station in the Ukraine. The blast was to cause the worst nuclear accident in history, leading to death and health problems for several thousands of people across parts of Europe.
The operation to clean up the area damaged by the explosion took years and people are still suffering the destructive effects of the Chernobyl disaster.
