BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Nuclear regulators from across Europe will examine cracks at a Belgian nuclear plant on Thursday to help establish what further action may be needed in reactors constructed by the same company - now defunct - in other countries.

Belgian nuclear watchdog FANC said it would hold the meeting to share information about the suspected cracks found in the core tank of Belgian reactor Doel 3.

The regulator said last week it had halted production at the 1,006 megawatt reactor - like all of Belgium's nuclear power stations operated by GDF Suez unit Electrabel - until at least the end of August to carry out further tests.
