Mexico clean-up begins after Tropical Storm Manuel

Mexico has begun to clear up after the floods and mudslides caused by Tropical Storm Manuel.

Authorities say they have partially reopened the main motorway link between the seaside resort of Acapulco and the capital, Mexico City. Its closure earlier in the week had left more than 20,000 tourists stranded.

The BBC's Will Grant says that as the flood waters receded, it is becoming clear "just how extensive the damage has been".
