At least six people have died and nine are feared missing in flash flooding on the Spanish island of Majorca.
A huge wave of muddy water engulfed the town of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, in the east of the island, after a river burst its banks following heavy rain.
Vehicles were swept away, some with their headlights switched on, as water gushed through narrow streets.
The Spanish military is deploying more than a hundred emergency workers with sniffer dogs.
Three helicopters and a Hercules military transport plane are also being sent from the mainland Spanish city of Valencia to help with search and rescue efforts.
