Flooding forces people from homes in Norway

Hundreds of people have been evacuated from their homes after heavy rain caused flooding in southeastern Norway.

In Nesbyen, a mudslide reached properties, filling some basements with water.

A river overflowed its banks in Kvam, sending water through the centre of the village. Around 250 people had to be evacuated.

Roads and rail services have also been affected by the bad weather, including the busy E6 highway, which links Oslo to the Mjosa region and northern parts of the country.
