Greece carried out mass evacuations overnight in the northern suburbs of Athens and on the nearby island of Evia as wind whipped up huge wildfires.

Thousands left their homes near the Greek capital, which is cloaked in acrid smoke, and 600 fled Evia by boat.

On Friday, a man was killed by a falling electricity pylon near Athens, health officials said.

Firefighters from France, Switzerland, Sweden, Cyprus and Romania have been deployed to assist Greece.
