A plane carrying mostly Chinese tourists has crashed into a river in Taiwan, killing at least 16 people.

Dramatic video footage emerged showing the TransAsia Airways plane clipping a bridge as it came down shortly after take-off from a Taipei airport.

The plane, carrying 58 people, has broken up and the fuselage is lying half-submerged in the Keelung River. Rescue efforts are ongoing.

Another TransAsia plane crashed in bad weather last July, killing 48 people.

Rescuers on boats have cut the plane open to gain access to several people still trapped inside.
