At least one person has been killed by a vehicle that crashed into a crowd of counter-demonstrators who were marching against a far-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The rally organised by the ultra-nationalist group, "Unite the Right", was planned to voice opposition to the removal of a Confederate statue and has been described as one of the largest white supremacist events in recent US history.

But Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was forced to declare a state of emergency after violence broke out in the city.
