A bus has plunged into a 400ft deep gorge in western India.

At least 27 people have died after a bus collided with a truck and plunged into a 400ft deep gorge in western India.

Police said the driver lost control of the bus after it collided with a truck near Malshej Ghat, a tourist spot about 100 miles north-east of Mumbai.

Police officer Raghunath Yadav initially reported 11 killed but the death toll has since risen to 27 as more bodies were recovered.

He said 10 others were injured, seven of them in a serious condition.

India has the world's deadliest roads, with more than 110,000 people killed annually.
