Car on the edge of a ditch

Cars and houses were entombed in mud in Breil-sur-Roya, a French town close to the Italian border, two days after torrential rains and floods hit the south-east of France.

A family urgently emptied their house by the Vésubie river in Roquebillière which threatened to collapse at any time.

"I feel like I'm still living in a nightmare," says a resident of Roquebillière, in the Alpes-Maritimes, in France, after storms lashed the area.

Heavy storms hit southern France and northern Italy resulting in two dead and at least 30 missing.
