Local authorities say that an explosion at a petrol station in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, has left at least 70 people dead.

Many of the victims had sought shelter at the station due to torrential rain.

The blast was caused by a fire that erupted in a lorry terminal nearby before spreading to the petrol station and other buildings in Accra

It is believed the accident is linked to the heavy downpours, and about a dozen people have been taken to hospital following the blast.
