Frustration grips Australia town

As searchers look for bodies in Grantham, many want to be allowed to go home to rebuild their lives.

    Floods in Queensland, in Australia's northeast, have left a vast territory under water and caused several deaths.

    In Grantham, described as the epicentre of the flash floods, 70 per cent of the town remains cordoned off while searchers looked for bodies.

    Yet many residents of the town just want to be allowed to go home so they can restart rebuilding their lives.

    Wayne Hay reports from Grantham.
