Thai floods death toll more than 500

The worst flooding to hit Thailand for 50 years has now claimed more than 500 lives, as the waters continue to flow towards the capital.

The centre of Bangkok is still dry and functioning as normal, but people living in yet more districts are being advised to leave.

This weekend the market of Chatuchak, just outside the city centre and the largest in the country, was the latest area in the city to be evacuated.
