A freak sandstorm that swept across a motorway in northern Germany caused a multiple pile-up, leaving eight people dead and dozens injured.


Sand and dirt were blown on to the four-lane A19 near Rostock, close to the Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state, on Friday.


The pile-up involved 80 cars and three lorries, with 20 vehicles set ablaze.


A combination of recent dry weather, ploughing of fields and high winds was blamed for the accident.
