Shocking pictures have emerged showing that China's largest freshwater lake has partially dried up...
- New pictures show parts of the Poyang Lake in China's Jiangxi province turning into a huge grassland
- The lake was once 4,500 square kilometres (1,737 square miles), three times the size of Greater London
- Water in Poyang recedes every winter but this year the dry season arrived early due to a shortage of rainfall
