Olympia in danger as fires advance in Greece

Fires in Greece which have claimed around 50 lives, are bearing down on communities near ancient Olympia.

Villages have been evacuated as the inferno continues to tear through forests.

Firefighters are trying to quell the flames by dropping water on them from planes.

The worst effected areas are in the mountains of the Peloponnese.

Some of the fires may have been started deliberately.
