Flooding in southeastern France has claimed the lives of four people, with the discovery of a man's body near Nîmes, bringing the death toll to four.

Three people remain missing, including a father and his two children, aged 4 and 13. Their car was swept away by a swollen river while they were attempting to cross a bridge.
