A clear-up has begun after a violent storm left at least 14 people dead and destroyed homes in several US South and Midwest states on Christmas Eve.

Mississippi was worst hit, with seven people dead, while six others were killed in Tennessee.

A seven-year-old boy, who was inside a car picked up and tossed in the storm, was among the dead.

At least 20 tornadoes have been reported, knocking down trees and leaving thousands without power.

Search teams have been combing through damaged buildings in the affected states, the situation complicated by the fact many people may be away for Christmas.
