Locust influx causing concern in Russia

Swarms of locusts have invaded parts of Russia, including Sochi, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 2014.

Emergency services say the number of vermin is on the increase due to the migration of the Moroccan locust species from the south of the country.

Authorities assure that the insects are harmless to people, although they pose a serious threat to agriculture.
