A coach has "ripped through a guard rail" and plunged off a flyover in southern Italy leaving at least 38 people dead.

The BBC's Alan Johnston in Rome says it is hard to "imagine how anybody might have lived through it".

The coach hit several vehicles before smashing through a parapet and toppling down a steep slope near the town of Avellino, in the Campania region.
