'Grim aftermath' of Canada wildfires in Fort McMurray

The oil boomtown of Fort McMurray has been dealt a devastating blow by the wildfires which have ripped through the Canadian province of Alberta.

It is thought that more than 2,000 homes were destroyed by the flames, though many more have been saved.

The authorities say it will still be weeks before people can return.

Laura Bicker has more from inside the city.
