It has been a week since Typhoon Haiyan swept across the central Philippines - and perhaps only now is the storm's full devastation becoming apparent. Aid workers say food and supplies are now beginning to reach survivors, but the logistics of distribution are enormous.

The official death toll has risen to over 3,500, and more than 11.8 million people have been affected, although the UN say these figures could be much higher.

At least 673,000 people have been displaced and the typhoon caused widespread damage to agriculture and infrastructure, with most buildings, homes and farms flattened in the worst hit areas.

Jeremy Cooke has been to a school in the devastated city of Tacloban - which is now home to 1,500 people.
