Wildfires are continuing to rip through the Greek island of Evia, prompting residents to flee to safety by sea.

More than 2,000 people have already been evacuated, with elderly residents carried onto ferries.

Local officials said not enough help had been sent to fight the fires, adding that parts of the island had already been destroyed.
Greece is experiencing its most severe heatwave in 30 years in which temperatures have spiked to 45C.

Heatwaves such as this are becoming more likely and more extreme because of human-induced climate change. The subsequent hot, dry weather is likely to fuel wildfires.
