Officials say forest fires raging in Spain's north-eastern Catalonia region have left three people dead.

Two French nationals drowned in the sea close to the border with France while trying to escape the flames.

Strong winds gusting up to 90km/h have rendered one fire "out of control".

All residents of the county of Alt Emporda - about 135,000 people - have been ordered to stay indoors.
