The rain is now tapering off and water levels are beginning to drop in Italy. Three days of torrential downpours have left large parts of the northern and central regions of the country underwater.

At least four people have been killed.

Tuscany has been particularly badly affected. Here in the village of Albinia, 800 people have been evacuated from their homes.

The flood waters have also reached the capital, Rome. The Tiber has burst its banks north of the capital, but the centre is being kept safe by high embankment walls.
