At least 17 people have been found dead in a nightclub in South Africa's East London city, local media report.

Bodies were found at the Enyobeni Tavern early on Sunday, and reports say several people were injured.

"The circumstances surrounding the incident are under investigation as we speak," a police spokesman told the Newzroom Africa television channel.

"We do not want to make any speculations at this stage," Brigadier Tembinkosi Kinana said.
