A search was also underway for a 73-year-old man who was swept away to sea while fishing near Castro Urdiales in northern Spain, emergency services said.

Flooding has swamped the city of Agueda in Portugal and affected the port of Pontevedra in Spain. Landslides have blocked roads north of Porto in Portugal and in Rioja, Spain, authorities said.

Spain's emergency service 112 said it had been called out to assist people stranded by more than 300 landslides.
