Hurricane Irma: Islands' needs unprecedented, says Patel

International Development Secretary Priti Patel has said the needs facing islands hit by Hurricane Irma are "unprecedented".

Ms Patel told the BBC the UK was here for the "long haul" to help with relief efforts in the British territories including Anguilla, Turks and Caicos and the British Virgin Islands.

Nine people died in the British region when the storm hit this week.
