Four British tourists have been killed in a plane crash near one of Peru’s top tourist sites, police have said.

The Cessna aircraft crashed in a field in an area around the Nazca Lines on Saturday after engine trouble.

Police said the British passengers – three men and one woman – and the Peruvian pilot and co-pilot all died.

The Nazca Lines, which are about 240 miles (385km) south-east of Lima, are one of Peru’s leading attractions and only fully visible from the air.
