Six people have died and more than 500 have needed medical treatment after wildfires threatened hotels in the Aegean resort of Bodrum. Hundreds of people were rescued from beaches by a flotilla of coastguard vessels and private boats and yachts.

A severe heatwave is to blame for the fires, with temperatures reaching 40°C in some places.

Fires have also broken out in Greece and Italy, with 150 people taken to safety from the seaside town of Catania. Palermo, Syracuse and Messina have also been affected.

One Russian holidaying in the area told local media:  “This is unbelievable, just unbelievable. How did this fire come this fast in five minutes?”
