10 November 2013 Last updated at 04:34 GMT

Police in the Philippines say they fear 10,000 people may have died in the devastation wreaked by Typhoon Haiyan.

The Philippine government has so far only confirmed the death of several hundred people after the storm struck.

There is no clean water, no electricity and very little food. City officials said they were struggling to distribute aid and that looting was widespread.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Tacloban.
