Flooding is continuing to sweep across Australia's east coast.

In Queensland, at least four people have died, and helicopters have been rescuing people stranded on rooftops.

North of Brisbane, 1,000 homes have been flooded in the town of Bundaberg, which is facing the highest flood levels on record.
