WINDS AND heavy rain battered north-west Australia yesterday as Cyclone Vance, already responsible for flattening more than 100 homes, continued its destructive march inland.

Meteorologists logged winds of 166mph, the strongest recorded on mainland Australia. Residents of Kalgoorlie, 550 miles east of Perth, were sandbagging their homes as the cyclone approached.
