At least 89 people have been killed in a fire that broke out in a hospital in the eastern Indian city of Calcutta (Kolkata), officials say.

Most of the victims were patients who were trapped after the flames spread through the AMRI hospital.

The fire started in the multi-storey hospital's basement, where flammable materials were stored. Firefighters took five hours to control the blaze.
