Brazil's Chapecoense football team in Colombia plane crash

Footage shows the devastation following the crash near Medellin in Colombia
A plane carrying 77 people, including a top Brazilian football team, has crashed on its approach to the city of Medellin in Colombia.

Colombia's civil aviation body says only six people survived the crash, blamed on an electrical fault.

The chartered aircraft, flying from Brazil via Bolivia, was carrying members of the Chapecoense team.

The team had been due to play in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, against Medellin team Atletico Nacional.

Organisers say Atletico Nacional has asked for Chapecoense to be awarded the cup. Brazilian clubs have offered to lend players to them for free for the next year.

Colombian aviation officials said there were 21 journalists on board.

How absolutely awful. Almost a whole football team of young men and 21 journalists.

Amost a whole football team wiped out.
They lit up Wembley's arch last night in the colour green in sympathy with the people of Brazil. Nice thought.
