Firefighters have 'window' to tackle Australian bushfires

Firefighters in southern Australia say weather conditions have eased, allowing a short window to try to bring under control bushfires which have been burning for four days just east of the city of Adelaide.

Planes known as airtankers are dropping water on the perimeter of the blaze to try to slow its progress.

Jon Donnison reports.
