US forecasters say that Hurricane Maria has strengthened to an "extremely dangerous" category 4 storm, as it bears down on islands in the Caribbean.

It is due to hit the Leeward Islands, which include the US and British Virgin islands, in the coming hours.

Maria is moving roughly along the same path as Irma, the hurricane that devastated the region this month.

Martinique declared a maximum-level alert while another French island, Guadeloupe, ordered evacuations.

Hurricane warnings were also issued for Puerto Rico, Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, Montserrat, St Lucia and the US and British Virgin Islands.

A hurricane watch is in place for St Martin, Saba, St Eustatius and Anguilla.
