Ships have been evacuated off the coast of southern China, after Typhoon Haiyan triggered strong winds and heavy rain.

After killing thousands of people in the Philippines, the typhoon was downgraded to a tropical storm.

It made landfall in north Vietnam near the border with China, triggering evacuations across the region, as Paul Collins reports.
