Sadly any public web resources will probably omitt any data which could prove to cause panic in the UK.
Do you remember Chernobyl friend?
Remember they stopped Welsh and Scottish beef and lamb from being eaten due to the radioactivity content?
Well sadly,the people in those areas (me included
)absorbed the same amount of radiation,but of course that was left unmentioned.
Its hard to know how bad the Fukushima disaster will be,but the way its continuing with no clear progess is worrying IMO.
If I could afford to I would be interested to buy a dosimeter(ebay sell them,maybe £200 for a decent one.)
Would be good to check water,food,rain etc over the coming months,keep a chart,measured against normal background radiation.
In that way,you could build a local picture of the rads,and determine what is safest to eat for you and your family.
Again,sadly I doubt the media or government will give you this info truthfully-so thats what I would do,get a dosimeter.
Edit,forgot links to some public rad maps:
