Beirut explosion: drone footage reveals scale of damage to homes

The destruction caused by last week’s explosion in Beirut is visible in drone footage shot in neighbourhoods devastated by the blast. The close-up footage shows buildings reduced to rubble and homes rendered uninhabitable. The explosion in the city’s port killed at least 154 people, injured 6,000 and destroyed a swathe of the city. Officials say the blast, which was felt hundreds of miles away, could have caused up to £11.5bn of damage.
