At least 37 people have been killed in the heaviest rains in Beijing in more than 60 years.

Elsewhere in China, six people were killed by rain-triggered landslides in Sichuan province while four were swept away by a rain-swollen river in Shanxi province.

And China is bracing itself for even more downpours over the coming hours.
