Storms toss planes across Forth Worth airport in Texas

At least 15 small planes at an airport in north Texas were badly damaged after fierce storms ripped through the area.

The planes were tossed across the tarmac at Fort Worth's Meacham International Airport on Sunday night by winds of more than 70mph (113km/h).

Buildings were also ripped apart and many thousands of people left without power.
