At least 50 people are thought to be dead after a catastrophic tornado ripped through five US states, causing damage and destruction to homes and buildings.

Kentucky governor Andy Beshear described the severe weather as “one of the toughest nights” in the history of his state, while warnings remain in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri and Illinois.
