Five killed as violent storm batters Corsica

Five people have died on the French Mediterranean island of Corsica as fierce storms lashed the area, including a 13-year-old girl killed when a tree fell onto her campground bungalow, police said.

It was the third day of intense rains - which had produced flash flooding and fierce hail - across much of southern France following weeks of punishing drought.

 Hail, heavy rain and winds measured as peaking at 224km/h swept across the French island as parts of the country - which has been hit by a series of heatwaves and severe drought - saw more rain in just a few hours than in recent months combined.
