Rescuers are making a push to reach thousands still stranded by flooding and landslides in northern India, as officials prepare to hold mass funerals for those killed.

Air force helicopters are flying to the temple town of Badrinath to bring down the 6,000 pilgrims still stuck there.

Meanwhile police say firewood, fuel and priests have been flown to the town of Kedarnath to perform mass cremations.

The floods have killed more than 600 people in Uttarakhand state.
