Ukraine’s President says the area surrounding Chernobyl ‑ the site of the world's worst nuclear accident ‑ is to be turned into a tourist site.

President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree that set out plans for new walking trails and enhanced mobile phone reception.

He says Chernobyl has been a negative part of Ukraine's brand and the time has come to change this.

A reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power station exploded in April 1986.
