Australian Prime Minster Tony Abbott has been inspecting damage caused by the country’s wildfires.
At least one person has died and nearly 200 homes have been destroyed in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales since fires began raging on Thursday.
Fuelled by unseasonably high temperatures and strong winds, the fires have forced thousands of people to flee.
