Six people have been killed and more than 100 injured, 10 of them seriously, in a stampede at a nightclub in Italy, officials say.

The incident took place near the eastern coastal city of Ancona.

Some reports say there was panic after pepper spray was fired inside the club in the town of Corinaldo but this has not been officially confirmed.

The Lanterna Azzurra club was packed at the time and many of the injured suffered crushing injuries.

The club was hosting a concert by Sfera Ebbasta, one of the best known Italian rappers, and up to 1,000 people were thought to be inside.
