TEPCO: loses control of pressure at 2nd nuclear plant

TOKYO, March 12 (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power (9501.T) said it had lost its ability to control pressure in some of the reactors of a second nuclear power plant at its quake-hit Fukushima facility in northeastern Japan.

    Pressure is stable inside the reactors but rising in the containment vessels, a spokesman said, although he did not know if there would be a need to release pressure at the plant at this point, which would involve a release of radiation.
