    More than 100 people have been killed and dozens more injured after a stampede at a Hindu festival in India.

    Officials say panic broke out on a bridge near to the Ratangarh temple in the town of Datia in Madhya Pradesh state after rumours spread that it was about to collapse.

    Many were crushed underfoot in the chaos; others died when they fell or jumped from the bridge.
