Southern France wildfires contained

French firefighters have contained blazes that threatened holiday areas near St Tropez.

But they say fresh gusts of wind cause flare-ups in some parched places near the southern coast.

Canadair planes are dropping water around Bormes-les-Mimosas and other hot spots.

It is the third day of the emergency, and about 10,000 people have fled the flames.
