Streets have turned into rivers amid severe flooding in parts of central Italy.
At least two people’s deaths are being linked to the floods in the Marche region, after the River Cesano burst its banks.
The worst hit area was Senigallia, where whole streets were flooded and cars floated in muddy waters.
Emergency services urged people not to leave their homes and to move to upper floors if necessary.
Police and fire service helicopters have been coordinating rescue efforts, with weather forecasters predicting more unsettled
weather in the coming days.
