TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's nuclear crisis minister unveiled a plan on Friday to form a more independent nuclear safety regulator by next April in an effort to restore faith in the country's ability to effectively police utility firms after the Fukushima crisis.

The watchdog will be separated from the trade ministry, which promotes nuclear energy, after criticism grew over its cozy ties with the industry, minister Goshi Hosono said.
