A fifth of the Canadian town of Fort McMurray which is home to 90,000 people has been destroyed by the wildfires that have been raging for the past week. A change in the weather is helping the efforts to control the fires and assessments of the damages are being made by officials who have been back into parts of the evacuated town. BBC correspondent Laura Bicker reports from the town and Gordon Campbell, High Commissioner for Canada, speaks to Mishal Husain. (Image: Wildfire in Fort McMurray. Credit: @jeromegarot via EPA)
