Migrant crisis: Bodies found in Austria lorry

The bodies of between 20 and 50 migrants have been found in a lorry abandoned in a motorway lay-by near the Austrian border with Hungary, authorities have said.

Austrian police say they think the people inside were already dead when the truck crossed into Austria.

The find comes as European leaders from the Balkan region, Germany and Austria, hold a summit in Vienna to work out what they can do to stem an ever-growing tide of migrants.

James Reynolds reports from Parndorf in Austria.
