President Barack Obama is due to visit New Jersey to survey some of the widespread devastation caused by superstorm Sandy in eastern US and Canada.

With at least 50 people killed - most by falling trees - and millions affected by the high winds, power cuts and flooding, Mr Obama cancelled campaign appearances in key state Ohio to oversee the government response.

He described the disaster at "heartbreaking for the nation".
