A village of 100 people in the Pacfic island nation of Vanuatu has become one of the first communities forced to move as a result of global warming.

After their coastal homes were repeatedly swamped by surges and large waves linked with climate change driven storms, in August the villagers of Lateu were relocated to higher ground in the interior of Tegua, one of Vanuatu's northern provinces.
