Australia fires 'worst in a decade'

Major bushfires are burning across the Australian state of New South Wales.

At least 30 homes have been destroyed on the outskirts of Sydney and it is feared that hundreds more may soon be lost.

The fires are being fanned by strong winds and unseasonably warm weather.

Nick Childs reports.
