Priti Patel: Hurricane-hit islands look 'apocalyptic'


Hurricane-battered British overseas territories look "apocalyptic" and like "something out of a horror movie", the International Development Secretary has said. Priti Patel was on a whistle-stop tour of the Caribbean as she announced a £5 million pledge of UK aid to help Dominica, an island which was ravaged by Hurricane Maria earlier this week. On Sunday she visited the British Virgin Island of Jost Van Dyke and then Anguilla to survey the level of devastation caused when they were pummelled by Hurricane Irma.
