Queen praises Queensland's 'courage' during floods

The Queen has praised the "resilience and courage" of Australians facing floods in January during her visit to the country.

She was speaking in Brisbane, where the river broke its banks, causing thousands to flee.

An estimated 45,000 well-wishers lined roads and the banks of the river to welcome the monarch and the Duke of Edinburgh.
