The international aid effort in parts of the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan is starting to have a major impact, with tens of thousands of victims of receiving supplies.

Medical teams are operating in the worst-affected areas and US helicopters flying aid to isolated settlements.

Haiyan, which hit eight days ago, has killed more than 3,600 people and left about half a million homeless.
