Bus crash kills 42 in India

At least 42 people, mostly schoolchildren, have been killed after a bus plunged into a canal near the western Indian city of Vadodara. Rescuers are still searching for the remaining passengers.

It's thought they were travelling to examinations in the nearby town of Bodeli when the accident occurred.

Reports say the driver lost control of the vehicle which then smashed through a concrete barrier into the water.

Only four children are known to have been rescued.
