Eleven people have been killed and one person seriously injured after a light plane carrying parachutists crashed and burst into flames near the southern Polish town of Czestochowa, in what is seen as Poland’s most serious crash of a civil aircraft in many years.

The plane, a Piper Navajo PA-31, reportedly had 11 parachutists and a pilot on board when it took off for a training flight. A few minutes later it crashed and caught fire in an orchard in the village of Topolow.

The only survivor, in serious condition, was taken to hospital in Czestochowa.

The plane was the property of a private parachuting school based at the small airport of Rudniki, near Czestochowa.
