'Tie everything down': Australia prepares for Cyclone Stan

Residents and mining companies in the north-west coastal region of Western Australia have been preparing for the approach of a powerful storm.

Thousands of people have been told to move to shelter as Cyclone Stan is expected to bring winds of up to 170 km/h.

The cyclone is forecast to intensify and cross the coast near Port Hedland, the world's largest iron ore export centre.
