A helicopter and an ultralight plane have collided mid-air in Mallorca, killing seven people.

The crash took place near Inca, in the north of the popular tourist island off the coast of mainland Spain.

Two of the victims were under 18, the regional government said.

Five of the victims, including the two minors, were on board the helicopter, while the two others were travelling in the ultralight, a type of small aircraft with a maximum of two seats.

Regional President Francina Armengol said emergency teams were working at the scene and one of the regional government’s ministers had been dispatched.

Photos made available from the local fire service showed wreckage from the aircraft in the town. The tail section of one landed on a road, while another photo showed twisted and blackened metal on fire in a garden.

Spanish media outlet La Sexta said the wreckage had landed in a nearby farm.

Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro S├ínchez expressed “solidarity and sympathies” with the victims.(bbc)
