Watch: Crocodiles seen in Australia floodwaters

Record rainfall driven by a tropical cyclone has caused widespread flooding in the north-east of Australia.

Hundreds of people were rescued as homes became inundated and roads cut off.

Cairns Airport – a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef – was closed on Sunday, as video emerged online of planes submerged in floodwaters.

In the town of Ingham, a crocodile was seen swimming in a storm drain.
