Russia attacks Europe's biggest nuclear power plant in Ukraine.

Breaking news: DAMAGE to Europe's biggest nuclear power plant caused by Russian shelling could trigger the biggest radiation leak in history, Ukraine's nuclear regulator has warned.

The enormous facility in Enerhodar, southern Ukraine, is under the control of Vladimir Putin's forces after sustained attacks overnight.

Security footage from the site 32 miles from Ukraine's sixth-biggest city Zaporizhzhia shows flames and smoke leaking from buildings.

Ukraine's State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate warned on Friday that while no changes in radiation have been registered yet, there are still potential risks posed by any damage to cooling facilities and spent fuel storage containers at the site.
