Wildfires are destroying tens of thousands of hectares of forest in east and north-eastern Spain.

Over 1,000 firefighters are working in the regions of Valencia and Barcelona to put out the flames, but the task has been made more difficult due to strong winds and high temperatures of around 40 degrees celsius.

In Cortes de Palla in Valencia, a blaze was started on Thursday during the installation of solar panels on homes in the area. Police have arrested two people.

Authorities have evacuated 700 people living in towns and villages near the danger zones. They are being housed in temporary shelters.

The fires follow one of the driest winters in the region in 70 years.
