More than 1,200 people have died across India, Bangladesh and Nepal as a result of flooding, with 40 million affected by the devastation.

The devastating floods have also destroyed or damaged 18,000 schools, meaning that about 1.8 million children cannot go to classes, Save the Children warned on Thursday.
