LATEST: Hurricane Wilma has forced the organisers of the MTV Latin American Music Video Awards to postpone the ceremony.

DULCE GORDILLO, MTV's Mexico spokeswoman, says a new date for the show has yet to be set.

The TV network had shifted the show from today (20OCT05) to yesterday (19OCT05) to avoid the hurricane, which was forecast to pass close by Mexico's Caribbean coast tomorrow (21OCT05).

The ceremony was due to have taken place at Mexico's Playa Del Carmen resort.

Officials at the US National Hurricane Center said yesterday that the storm had developed into the most intense hurricane on record in the Atlantic basin.
