Deadly Spain floods hit Malaga, Murcia and Almeria


At least eight people have died after heavy rains triggered flash floods in southern Spain, officials have said.

A British woman is also reported to be among the missing.

The strength of the waters overturned cars, closed roads, damaged homes and forced hundreds to leave their properties. At least 600 people had to be evacuated from their homes in Andalucia region.

Spain's weather agency said that up to 245 litres (65 gallons) of water per square metre had fallen on Friday morning alone.
