At least seven people have died and two are badly injured after fire swept through a Chinese-owned clothing factory in the Italian town of Prato.

The blaze broke out in a loft where 11 people were sleeping, causing part of the roof to collapse, fire officials said.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.

Prato, in Tuscany, has become a centre for Chinese-run factories producing low-cost garments.
