Up to 50,000 residents of In Buri district of Sing Buri, Thailand may be evacuated if the broken dyke at the Bang Chom Sri water sluice gate cannot be fixed fast enough, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said yesterday.

Ms Yingluck made an aerial inspection of the gate aboard a helicopter and later checked the damage from the ground.
