The tsunami, which hit Japan on Friday, has destroyed many towns including Ofunato, Iwate Prefecture, in the north-east of the country.

Pictures show a car perched on top of a house and buildings washed away or collapsed after the wall of water struck.

Troops are now on hand to assist in the search and rescue operations.
