Plague of locusts overruns Greek isle of Agios Efstratios

A tiny Greek island in the Aegean Sea has been overrun by a plague of locusts.

Agios Efstratios, home to just 200 people, has been forced to declare a state of emergency.

A member of the local administration, Stella Spanou, told the BBC that sheep were starving as so much vegetation had been devoured by the locust swarms.
