Four men have died after a speedboat collided with a cargo ship on a Dutch river.

Police found the bodies of three men today after discovering a body on Monday night shortly after the crash on the Maas River, in the town of Cuijk.

Three other occupants of the speedboat managed to scramble on to the freighter after the crash near the eastern town.

Police spokeswoman Marion Kruizinga says officers are interviewing witnesses and conducting tests on the wreckage of the speedboat. They could not yet give a cause for the crash.
