Dozens of people have died after a collision between a double-decker coach and a methanol tanker in China.

Officials say just three of the 39 coach passengers survived the crash on a highway near the city of Yan-an in Shaanxi province.

It is thought most of them were asleep at the time of the collision.

The bus was on its way from Baotou in Inner Mongolia to the Shaanxi provincial capital Xian.

Road accidents are among the leading causes of death in China. Last year around 70,000 people were killed on the country’s roads.
