Finnish authorities are investigating a mysterious “highly exceptional” spike in levels of radioactive caesium-137 detected over Helsinki, officials said Tuesday.

Nuclear safety regulator STUK said that while the radioactive surge last week posed no danger to human health, it was keen to get to the bottom of the cause.

“The detection was highly exceptional but from a nuclear safety perspective this level of caesium does not have any effect on human health,” Tarja Ikaheimonen, the head of radiation surveillance at STUK, told AFP.
