Military plane crashes in Seville, Spain

Spain’s defence ministry says a military plane has crashed near Seville airport, in the country’s south west. The ministry has yet to confirm whether there were any tragedies as a result of the crash, however emergency service workers at the scene claim at least three people have died. Two are thought to be seriously injured, and two unaccounted for. The rescue workers say seven people were on board.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy originally said between eight and ten people were on board when the plane came down, around 1.6 kilometres north of San Pablo airport.
