A hotel has collapsed in eastern Taiwan after a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the island late on Tuesday.

The quake hit at 11.50pm (3.50pm GMT) around 13 miles northeast of the port city Hua-lien, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Images on local television showed the Marshal Hotel in Hua-lien slanted on its side, partially crumpled into the ground.

Local media reported a number of buildings had toppled with around 30 people potentially trapped in the collapsed hotel, with others crawling to safety or being evacuated.
