Six school children have been killed and 12 others hurt in a bus crash in northern India.

The three other victims lost their lives later in hospital.

An investigation is under way into what caused the accident.

The children were students at a school in a remote area of the mountainous state.

In September, 55 people were killed when a bus carrying pilgrims from a Hindu temple in the hills of south India plunged off a road.

Around 150,000 people die every year on India’s roads, often because of reckless driving, badly maintained roads and overcrowded vehicles.
