A stampede at a chariot festival in the eastern Indian town of Puri has left at least two people dead and 15 others injured.

Police struggled to control the tens of thousands of devotees present.

It was the second deadly stampede at an Indian Hindu festival in less than a week.

On Tuesday, 27 people were killed and 40 injured in a stampede in Andhra Pradesh in southern India.
