Typhoon Hagupit: Storm weakens as it nears Philippine capital Manila

Tropical storm Hagupit is heading to Manila, but has been downgraded from a typhoon after crossing the country.

At least 21 people were killed by the storm, the Red Cross said, with the eastern island of Samar worst hit, but it caused far less damage than feared.

Clive Myrie reports from Manila where many people have been saved from the storm's violence.
