Thirty-three homes have been evacuated and nearly 100 people left homeless by a landslide which is tearing apart the village of Ponzano in Italy.

Officials say a hill has been cut in two, and the landslide is moving at a rate of a metre a day.

The village is in the Abruzzo region, which was hit by a string of earthquakes in 2016.
