Nearly a million people in New York state remain without power after Storm Sandy, as frustration grows over the slow pace of recovery.

Power returned to large parts of Manhattan on Saturday, but on Staten Island people were still struggling without electricity and with a huge shortage of fuel.

The city’s marathon, which was due to take place on Sunday, has been cancelled.

At least 106 deaths have been blamed on Sandy in the US, 40 of them in New York City.
