Rescuers are battling to reach remote Myanmar towns hit by a powerful earthquake which killed 75 and left roads torn apart and homes reduced to rubble.

The 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck in the east of the country near the borders with Thailand and Laos and was felt as far away as the Vietnamese capital Hanoi.

The towns of Tarlay, Tachileik and nearby villages in Myanmar's Shan state appear to have been most severely affected by the quake.
