India heatwave hits poorest hardest

A heatwave has continued to sweep India where the extreme weather conditions have lasted for over a month.

The official advice is to stay in the shade, cover up and drink liquids.

This is not always possible for the poorest sections of the population who have no choice but to carry on in order to survive.
