A tropical storm which has been battering the south-west of Mexico has been upgraded to a category one hurricane by US meteorologists.

Hurricane Manuel is now approaching north-western Mexico and threatens more destruction, the US National Hurricane Centre says.

Tropical storms Manuel and Ingrid left at least 80 people dead earlier this week and 40,000 people are still stranded in the popular resort of Acapulco.
