At least 40 people have been killed in a collision between a bus and a truck near the south-western city of Bordeaux, French police said.

The crash occurred near the town of Puisseguin, an official with the national gendarme service said, adding that the death toll may have been so high because the bus caught fire.

Scores of emergency workers in the region have been mobilised to help, the official said.

Europe-1 radio reported that the bus was carrying primarily elderly people.

It was not immediately clear how many people were on the bus or their nationalities.
