A collision between a tanker and a lorry on a motorway in northern Italy has left six people dead.

There were two children among the fatalities from the accident which happened on a motorway near the city of Brescia.

The tanker burst into flames after hitting the lorry, setting fire to other vehicles, including one car with a family of five inside it.

The sixth victim was the driver of the tanker.

The motorway was closed for hours in both directions after the crash.
