Fifteen districts in south eastern France are on high alert after gale force winds and heavy rain pounded the region overnight.

The Ardèche was hardest hit as rivers burst their banks and more than 6000 homes were left without electricity.

More severe weather is forecast for Wednesday with as much as 45cm of rain likely to fall before the storms pass.
