At least 43 people, most of them pensioners on a day trip, have been killed in a head-on collision between a bus and a truck in south-west France.

The crash happened on a country road near Puisseguin in the Gironde wine region, east of Bordeaux. Both vehicles then caught fire.

France’s president promised a full investigation into what he called an “immense tragedy”.

It is the worst French road disaster since 1982, when 52 people died.
