The massive heatwave sweeping India is starting to ease, with forecasts of rain in some affected states.

Officials say nearly 1,700 people have died in the worst-hit states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, where temperatures rose above 45 celcies.

Clouds have formed over some parts of the two states and weather officials say pre-monsoon showers are likely to provide some relief on Friday.

The monsoon is due to reach Kerala, in the south, by the end of May.
