A big rescue and clean-up operation is taking place in Russia following Friday's meteorite strike with up to 20,000 workers helping out.

Almost 1,200 people were injured after the crash - with many people suffering cuts and bruises from glass which was blown out of windows.

On Friday a fireball was spotted racing through the sky before a series of loud bangs were heard.

Reports say that the meteor landed in a lake near a town called Chebarkul.
