Deadly storm hits northern Greece

Six people have died in a powerful storm in northern Greece.
Emergency services officials said around 65 people had been injured, of whom 35 were taken to hospital, after the storm hit the northern Halkidiki region late on Wednesday, toppling trees and power pylons, cutting power and blocking roads.
Two of those who died were killed when high winds overturned their recreational vehicle, while another two – a child and his mother – were hit by an outdoor restaurant’s lean-to roof that collapsed.
Another two were killed by falling trees.
A state of emergency was declared in the region, a peninsula near the northern city of Thessaloniki popular with tourists in the summer.
