Creeping wall of ice destroys homes in Canada


Several homes have been destroyed and many damaged in the Canadian province of Manitoba after ice from a nearby lake was pushed up onto land by the wind.

It comes as another wave of ice came ashore on the banks of Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota.

Strong winds pushed floes towards the water's edge - creating cascades of ice crystals which pushed up against trees and houses.
