The destruction caused by last week’s explosion in Beirut is visible in drone footage shot in devastated neighbourhoods. The close-up footage shows buildings reduced to rubble and homes rendered uninhabitable. The explosion in the city’s port killed at least 154 people, injured 6,000 and damaged large parts of the city. Officials say the blast, which was felt hundreds of miles away, could have caused damages worth as much as £11.5bn
