Japanese troops are airlifting supplies to thousands of people trapped in mountainous districts cut off by floods on the southern island of Kyushu.

Rescue teams have been searching for those missing following flooding and landslides caused by record rainfall.

The death toll has now risen to 26 but hundreds of thousands have been affected with many of them staying in evacuation centres.

Heavy rain has also caused flooding in Japan's historic capital, Kyoto.
