All of the bushfires in New South Wales in Australia are now considered contained.

The NSW Rural Fire Service said it was "great news" after "a very traumatic, exhausting and anxious" time.

The development is thanks in part to heavy rain, which has lashed the state since last weekend.

But the severe storms led to flash flooding in Queensland where a 75-year-old man is reported to have died.

Record rainfall caused chaos in Sydney, and the weather woes are set to continue, with further storms expected along the east coast over the next few days.

Flood warnings have been issued for NSW and for southern Queensland.
