Eleven people have been killed in Poland after a plane taking them on a parachute jump crashed just after taking off.

It happened near the city of Czestochowa in the south of the country late on Saturday afternoon.

A twelfth person survived and was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

The plane, which was operated by a private parachuting school, caught fire as soon as it hit the ground.

Local media are reporting that the aircraft may have been overloaded. The plane, a Piper PA-31 Navajo, is only supposed to carry seven people.

An investigation is underway to find out the cause.
