Sand Branch water crisis: The town without water for 30 years

As President Barack Obama visits Flint this week to address the ongoing water crisis in the Michigan city, the BBC has travelled to another town in the US going through a water crisis of its own - it doesn't have any.

Sand Branch in Texas has never had running water, and its well water has not been drinkable for decades.

Now local officials are trying to relocate residents to nearby areas, rather than pay to have water pumped in.

But many of the locals don't want to leave, as they tell the BBC.
