35 killed in crush at New Year celebrations in China

A CRUSH at New Year's Eve celebrations in the Chinese city of Shanghai has killed 35 people and injured more than 40 according to China's state media.

The Shanghai City Government has reported the crush broke out at 11.35pm local time, less than half an hour before the beginning of 2015.

A working group has now been created to handle the incident.

The cause of the crush will now be investigated.

Images shown on social media showed people being given first aid on the street with police cordoning off the area.
