Six people have been killed and dozens seriously injured in a stampede at a nightclub in Italy on Friday.

It was learned that 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.

The Lanterna Azzurra club was hosting a concert by rapper Sfera Ebbasta and up to 1,000 people were thought to be inside.

The incident took place at around 01:00 (midnight GMT) as Italy began celebrating the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

Many of the injured who suffered crushing wounds have been taken to hospitals in Senigallia and Ancona.

In June last year about 1,500 people were injured in Turin after a firecracker sparked a stampede at a public screening of the Champions League final.
