Six dead and dozens injured in Italian nightclub stampede - local media

A stampede at a packed nightclub in Italy has killed at least 6 people.

Five teenagers and an adult were crushed to death in the early hours of Saturday (December 8) morning.

A walkway leading out of the Lanterna Azzurra nightclub in the town of Corinaldo collapsed.

Dozens of people fell into a trench below, over 100 were injured.

Police said the teenagers were aged between 14 and 16.

The fire brigade said someone might have sprayed a substance like pepper spray into the crowd, triggering a panicked rush to the emergency exits.

Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said it seemed there were many more people than permitted inside the club.
