Typhoon Haiyan: Families bury relatives in Tacloban

Tacloban on the east coast of the Philippines is one of the worst affected cities following Typhoon Haiyan and families have resorted to burying their own relatives, carrying them on foot to the burial ground.

A huge international relief effort is under way in the Philippines, but rescue workers have struggled to reach areas cut off since the storm.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Tacloban.
