Thai flood victims queue for meals

Workers in Thailand are racing to complete floodwalls of sandbags on the outskirts of Bangkok to stop the country's worst floods in years from inundating parts of the capital.

Further north, Thailand's plains are also severely flooded.

At least 270 people from across Thailand have died in the floods since July.

The BBC's Rachel Harvey reports from Ayutthaya - one of the worst-affected areas - where people have been moving to evacuation shelters.
