The remains of a plane landed on a city road

At least five people were killed in Majorca when a helicopter and an ultra-light aircraft collided in mid-air.

The crash happened near Inca, in the north of the popular tourist island off the coast of mainland Spain.

At least one of the victims is understood to have been under 1

8 years of age.

Spanish media reports that at least three passengers – a couple and a minor – are traveling together in a helicopter.

The other two died are believed to be flying in the ultra-light aircraft – a kind of small plane with a maximum of two seats.

The Government of the Balearic Islands, to which Mallorca belongs, has confirmed at least five deaths.

Regional President Francina Armengol said emergency teams were working at the scene and one of the regional government ministers was dispatched.

Local newspaper Diario De Mallorca said the collision took place in the air above the hospital in Inca around 13:36 local time (12:36 GMT), emergency teams were trying to determine if two more potential victims were on board time, the message said.

Photographs provided by the local fire department show remains of an airplane in the city. The tail part of one landed on the road, while another photo shows distorted and black metal in a fire in a garden.

Spanish media La Sexta said the remains had landed on a nearby holding.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez expressed "solidarity and sympathy" with the victims.
