Heavy rain is continuing to cause flooding across parts of Brazil.

In Sao Paulo motorists had to be winched to safety by helicopter after a river burst its banks during rush hour.

Elsewhere, authorities have confirmed that at least 700 people were killed in the floods and mudslides in Rio de Janeiro state last week.
