Philippines Typhoon Hagupit makes landfall

Typhoon Hagupit has made landfall in the town of Dolores in the eastern Philippines, the country's weather agency says.

The storm knocked out electricity and felled trees in the area, though no casualties have been reported.

Over half a million have fled coastal villages in the past few days ahead of the storm's arrival.

Rupert Wingfield Hayes visited the city of Tacloban in the eastern Philippines, which was devastated by last year's typhoon.
