The death toll from Typhoon Vamco that battered the Philippines this week has climbed to 53, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said on Saturday.

The PNP said 22 people were still missing in the flash floods and landslides triggered by the typhoon, which tore through the main island of Luzon from Wednesday to Thursday. The toll is likely to rise as rescuers continue to search for the missing.
