Engineers battling to cool an overheating nuclear power plant in Japan may enable the control room of reactor no. 2 to regain some functions on Monday, the nuclear safety agency said.

Equipment likely to be switched back on includes temperature and pressure instruments as well as the air filtering system, which is designed to prevent radioactive substances entering the control room.

"As a result, the environment for workers will significantly improve," an agency official told a news conference.
