At least 22 people have been killed when a wall collapsed during a wedding party in western India.

The guests had taken shelter from heavy rain under a tin shack when a wall collapsed onto it in the storm.

Another 26 people have been injured in the accident in Bharatpur, a district in Rajasthan state, 15 of them seriously.

Local media reports say food stalls had been set up along the wall for the wedding.

"The wall and a tin shed attached to it at the marriage venue collapsed due to a storm," police officer Anil Tank is quoted as saying.

He said the wall was nearly 90ft long and 12-13ft in height and the collapse trapped many guests.
