Caravan floats down river then smashes into pieces against bridge in Swiss floods

A caravan was filmed floating down a river only to hit a bridge and smash into pieces, in Switzerland on Thursday 15 July. Severe flooding has hit parts of Switzerland after continuous and intense rainfall. The caravan was filmed on swollen Aare river in Meiringen. A number of European countries, including Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland, have been hit by flooding in recent days. Meanwhile flooding has also hit many areas of India and the US, and forest fires are raging across Siberia. Scientists say such extreme weather events have been made much more likely by climate change.
