Nine people have been killed after a train hit a minibus on a level crossing in central Poland.

The force of the impact hurled the vehicle 30 metres down the track.

The crash happened on Monday near the city of Lodz. The crossing had no barrier or guards.

The minibus was carrying 10 people at the time. Most of the victims are understood to be from Ukraine.

It is the second major rail accident in Poland this year. In March, 16 people were killed in a head-on collision between two trains in the south of the country.
