Dramatic images taken from the air have revealed some of the worst flooding to hit Mexico in decades.

At least 80 people have died and thousands have lost their homes after days of torrential rain brought on by two tropical storms.

Landslides have claimed many of the victims – their homes buried beneath tons of mud.

With extensive damage to the country’s roads and bridges, many areas have been cut off.

In the Mexican beach resort of Acapulco, burst rivers brought with them alligators onto the city’s streets.

Police have also reported looting where everything from televisions to Halloween decorations have been taken.

Meteorologists have warned of more low pressure heading Mexico’s way which is likely to turn into another tropical cyclone, dumping yet more heavy rain.
