At least eight people have been killed by a huge landslide in the north-western US state of Washington.

Rescuers pulled five bodies from the debris on Sunday, adding to three found on Saturday.

Officials say there are still a number of people registered as missing, but search teams said they had not seen or heard any signs of survivors.

The 54m (177ft) deep landslide destroyed 30 houses near the town of Oso, about 90km north of Seattle.

Rescue teams have only just been able to properly search the site.

It was deemed too dangerous to access the worst-affected areas on Saturday.

‘Wall of mud’
An eyewitness told the Daily Herald that he was driving on the road and had to quickly brake to avoid the mudslide.
