The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton's BBC One show wearing a surgical boot.

I've broken my toe. I've received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour due to delays.

I'm really, really sorry about that. I think you probably understand just how sorry I am. "But we are working very, very hard to get this interview rescheduled and Hillary Clinton is very apologetic. "So what can I say, that's the situation." It follows a string of late arrivals by the former US secretary of state over the weekend.

She was also delayed a similar amount of time on Saturday, when she was presented with an honorary doctorate at Swansea University.

But the visit was called off at late notice due to the severe weather warnings. It is understood the visit may still take place on Tuesday.

Crews push to contain California fires, search for bodies
By Jim Christie SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Crews fought their way across rugged, steep terrain on Tuesday in a push to gain full control of the deadliest wildfires in California history, as search-and-rescue teams picked through an ashy moonscape of destroyed homes looking for victims.

Already 41 people have been confirmed killed in the fires, which erupted last week and were driven by dry, hot winds into Northern California communities, giving residents little or no chance to escape.
