Firefighters have rescued 42 people from a bus submerged in floodwaters in China's Jiangxi province, Chinese state television has reported.

The passengers were trapped for one and a half hours on Thursday, after the bus was caught in a fierce storm which flooded roads in Ganzhou City.

Footage from Chinese state broadcaster CCTV showed firefighters pulling passengers to safety along ropes tied between the bus and higher ground.

The driver and all 42 passengers escaped unharmed.
