Hurricane Irene heads towards New York

New York's mayor has issued the city's first-ever mandatory evacuation notices, as the US faces up to the arrival of Hurricane Irene.
Low-lying areas around Manhattan and into Staten Island are at particular risk, according to projections issued by city authorities.
The city's transport systems, including the subways and airports, are to shut from 12:00 on Saturday (16:00 GMT).
Irene, a category one storm, is due to hit a swathe of east coast states.
