At least 12 people died and dozens were injured when two passenger trains collided head-on in the southern heel of Italy today.

The crash happened on a single stretch of track in countryside between the towns of Corato and Andria.

An aerial image showed train carriages smashed and crumpled by the force of the impact, with debris spread out amongst olive trees which flanked both sides of the rail line.

There was no immediate reason given for the collision, which took place at 11.30 this morning.
