Report from the edge of Marysville

Marysville in the Australian state of Victoria has been virtually destroyed in a fire that killed at least 15 people.

The blaze was one of a string of wildfires that swept through the region.

Some of the fires, including the one in Marysville, are thought to have been started deliberately.

Nick Bryant reports from just outside the town, which remains cordoned off.
