Czech factory marooned amid floods

Cities in southern and eastern Germany are on high alert as heavy floodwaters swell rivers including the Elbe.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has promised 100m euros (£78m; $130m) in emergency aid for flood-hit areas.

Meanwhile, river levels in Prague, in the Czech Republic have begun to fall, as floodwaters move north.

The BBC's Christian Fraser reports from Port Ústí nad Labem where rising waters have left homes and a factory marooned.
