Spain stemming halt of devastating wildfires

Firefighters have mostly managed to halt the advance of huge wildfires ripping through parts of southern Spain, officials say.

At least one person has been killed and five others wounded in the blazes that have destroyed homes on Spain's Costa del Sol.

The BBC's Tom Burridge says that although the wildfires are stabilising, small pockets of fire remain out of control.
