Up to 70 feared dead after explosion at Texas fertiliser plant

Up to 70 people are feared dead after a massive explosion at a fertiliser plant in Texas.

More than 100 people have been hurt following a fire at the plant near Waco.

An American football pitch has been opened up to act as a make-shift hospital for those injured.

The mayor says the blast badly damaged a school and nursing home nearby.

The 133 elderly residents have been safely evacuated.

The fire is still burning and strong winds are fanning the flames.

Toxic fumes are in the air and power has been knocked out to the wider community.
