About 50 other people were injured, about a dozen seriously.

One of dead was a mother of a teenager. Dino Poggiali told Sky TG24 News.

Five children are among six people who have died in a stampede at an Italian nightclub, police have said.

Police have opened an investigation into the causes of the incident.

The radio report said most of the fatalities had suffered crushed skulls.

The Lanterna Azzurra club was hosting a concert by rapper Sfera Ebbasta and up to 1,000 people were thought to be inside.

There was panic after pepper spray was sacked inside the club, according to the BBC, citing other reports.

Italian fire officials said concertgoers at a nightclub in the town of Corinaldo, on the Adriatic Sea, panicked and ran for the exits after someone sprayed a noxious substance. A teenage survivor told ANSA that when he tried to flee, he discovered that at least one of the emergency exits was locked. Another eyewitness said a wall inside the club had collapsed in the melee.

Salvini vowed that responsibility would be determined for the "six broken lives - whoever out of nastiness, stupidity or greed transformed an evening of partying into tragedy". That could have made it more likely that young teenagers were at the disco in the wee hours.
