At least 20 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands left without power in the Philippines as Typhoon Rammasun continues to batter the country.

The typhoon, also known as Glenda, barrelled across the island with gusts of up to 185km/h (115 mph).

It is now moving towards the island of Hainan, where it is expected to make landfall on Friday.
