'No way to help' Mexico flood victims

There is "no way to help" some of those stranded by flooding in Mexico as they can not be reached, a Red Cross worker has said.

Paulino Aguirre is based in Acapulco and told the BBC that there had been a brief respite from the weather, but that it had since started raining again.

Tropical storms Ingrid and Manuel have already claimed the lives of at least 80 people.

Manuel has now been upgraded to hurricane and threatens more destruction as it heads towards north-western Mexico.
