At least 20 people have died after a fire broke out in a hospital in eastern India, local police say.

They say the fire started in the dialysis ward of the hospital, a private facility in the city of Bhubaneswar, Odisha state.

About 120 firefighters were mobilised to tackle the blaze, which was later brought under control.

More than 40 critically ill patients were trapped in an intensive care unit by the blaze, which is believed to have been triggered by an electric short circuit in the dialysis ward of the SUM hospital building in Bhubaneswar.
