Rain causes mudslides in Italy

There's chaos in the village of Atrani in Italy after heavy rain caused a nearby river to burst its banks.

The water has caused massive mudslides and diggers worked through the night removing debris and rubble after cars were thrown down the streets.

At least one woman is missing.

Police and the fire brigade are trying to find her and a massive clean-up operation is underway.
