April 2 (Reuters) - The operator of Japan's stricken nuclear plant said on Saturday it had found radioactive water leaking into the sea from a cracked concrete pit at its No.2 reactor in Fukushima.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said the radiation in the pit measured 1,000 millisieverts per hour.

Japan's nuclear watchdog said TEPCO is preparing to pour concrete into the pit to stop the leak.
