More than 259 vehicles were involved in a huge pile-up on one of Germany's main autobahns.

More than 65 people were injured in the crash, including 10 who were still fighting for their lives yesterday.

Emergency services used three helicopters and 40 ambulances to ferry the wounded to a number of hospitals.

The crash a series of three pile-ups on a 20-mile stretch came on Sunday evening as holidaymakers headed on to German roads as the school holidays began.

They happened on the A2 autobahn that links Berlin with the Dutch border near the city of Braunschweig and Hanover.

Police said heavy rain suddenly gave way to blinding sunshine, catching motorists unaware.

More than 350 firemen and other emergency service workers were called in to help clear the carriageways and get to the wounded.
