Violent storms and flooding have hit southeast France, killing at least 13 people with six more missing.

Three elderly people drowned when their retirement home near the city of Antibes was inundated with floodwater.

Another three people died when the car they were in became trapped by rising water in a small tunnel.

French President Francois Hollande has thanked rescuers and expressed the "solidarity of the nation".

He and the country’s Interior Minister are due to visit the affected regions.
