Spanish wildfires leave devastating trail

Residents have been returning to their homes on Spain's Costa Del Sol to assess the damage caused by wildfires.

Thousands of people were forced to flee houses and hotel rooms as the flames reached the outskirts of Marbella on Friday.

A 78-year-old man was found dead and five others were hurt, two seriously, in the fires.
