Tornado rips through Auckland

A tornado has roared through the New Zealand city of Auckland, killing one person and injuring several more.

It touched down at about 1500 (0300 GMT) in the city's Albany area and then moved south, felling trees and tearing roofs off houses.

Cars were overturned by the tornado, which left a 5 km-long (three mile-long) trail of damage.
