It is now two months since the devastating floods that hit the southern Philippines, killing more than 1,000 people and leaving many more homeless.

Officials admit that deforestation was the cause of much of the destruction and the government says it has renewed efforts to prevent any more trees being cut down.

But the BBC has seen evidence that logging is still causing concern that December's disaster could be repeated.

Kate McGeown visited one of the worst affected areas in Mindanao to see the impact of the floods and hear from locals.
