Four people have been killed and 20 others injured after a flash flood tore through a festival in northern Italy.

The event at Refrontolo, north of Venice, was meant to celebrate and promote the attractions of the area.

But during the festivities, there was a burst of very heavy rain and a wall of water suddenly ripped through the area.
