Schools have reopened in the southern Indian city of Chennai (Madras) after a month of heavy rains and deadly floods.

Schools and colleges in the city and neighbouring districts of Tamil Nadu were ordered shut on 12 November.

At least 280 people died in the floods, which brought normal life to a standstill and closed Chennai's international airport for six days.

The rains, the heaviest in 100 years, were blamed on climate change.

With the rains stopping last week and water levels receding, the city has been limping back to normal. A major clean-up operation is under way.
