People on Australia's north-west coast are bracing themselves for the arrival of a tropical cyclone, with forecasters predicting winds of more than 170 km (106 miles) an hour.

Forecasters say Cyclone Rusty could strengthen to a category four storm, and people in Port Hedland have been stocking up on essentials following warnings to take shelter.
