At least 11 people are reported to have been killed by a falling tree during a religious festival on Madeira.

Another 35 people are also said to have suffered crush injuries as they waited for a street procession to begin after a church service as part of the Festa da Senhora do Monte festival.

Local reports said the large tree had come crashing down on the crowd outside a church on the hills of the village of Monte, overlooking the Portuguese island’s capital of Funchal, at about midday.
