Church 'appears' from reservoir in Mexico as water levels fall

The ruins of a huge 16th Century church have emerged from a reservoir in Mexico.

A lack of rain in the southern state of Chiapas has meant the water level has dropped by 25m (75ft).

It is the second time the church has reappeared in this way.

Low water levels in 2002 meant that visitors could actually walk inside it.
