Romney meets hurricane's victims

31 August 2012 Last updated at 23:06 BST

Mitt Romney has toured hurricane-hit Louisiana, a day after accepting the Republican nomination for US president.

The former Massachusetts governor joined Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal as they visited a flooded community south of New Orleans.

His motorcade passed inundated homes and submerged petrol stations as residents stood in water where there should have been front lawns.
