According to media in the country, the five dead include the pilot and three passengers as well as the driver of a lorry which was hit by the plane.

The plane crash landed on a lorry which was unloading goods in the supermarket vehicle park.

The injured were shopping inside the supermarket, which is located in a residential neighbourhood, and were treated for shock and smoke inhalation.

Authorities declined to identify those killed in the plane until their identities could be compared with the flight plan.

The spot where the plane crashed is said to be just 150 metres from a local school. Nearby houses were blackened by smoke, with nine people forced to move out of their homes.

Portugal's president Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa was quick to arrive on the scene after the first reports emerged.
