A huge explosion has ripped through a hotel in Cuba and left the building gutted amid reports it erupted due to gas works.

The blast destroyed the luxury Hotel Saratoga in Havana as it blew walls out and reportedly left people trapped on the top floor.

Flames and plumes of smoke were seen streaking out of the crumbling wreckage as rescuers desperately searched the rubble for survivors.

The explosion was so powerful buses and cars that were parked outside the 90-year-old building were left crumpled or damaged.
