Wildfires continue to rip through parts of Siberia forcing the closure of Tomsk regional airport. Around 15,000 hectares of forest have been destroyed as a result.

The fires are being fuelled by intense heat and hot winds. Russian firefighters say they are tackling around 30 wildfires in the area.
