A self-employed taxi driver killed twelve people in north-west England on Wednesday, national media and police say.

Taxi driver Derrick Bird shot dead a colleague in the town of Whitehaven before going on a shooting spree in local countryside. His body was later found in woodland.

Police say 25 other people were injured, three of them critically.

"We are still at a very early stage in our investigation and we are not able to really understand the motivation behind it - or establish whether this was a premeditated or random attack," Cumbria Police's Deputy Chief Constable Stuart Hyde said

"Current indications are that 12 people have died, plus Derrick Bird. And a number of people are also receiving treatment in hospital," he added.

The shooting is England's worst since 1987, when Michael Ryan killed 16 people in Hungerford, Berkshire.
