At least one person is dead and another injured after Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo space tourism craft crashed in the California desert.

The craft was flying a manned test when it experienced what the company described as "a serious anomaly".

It was undergoing its first powered test flight since January, north of Los Angeles.

Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson tweeted he was flying to California "to be with the team"
