Mudslides and flooding in Mexico after heavy storms

17 September 2013 Last updated at 10:36 BST

At least 12 people have been killed in mudslides in the eastern Mexican state of Veracruz as the country continues to be battered by two tropical storms.

Hurricane Ingrid made landfall on the Atlantic coast, while Tropical Storm Manuel has triggered mudslides causing buildings to collapse in states along the Pacific.

More than 20,000 people have been evacuated and moved to shelters.
