British Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday said he was "shocked" after a Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 295 people crashed in eastern Ukraine.

Writing on Twitter, Cameron said: "I'm shocked and saddened by the Malaysian air disaster."

He added that government officials were meeting "to establish the facts".

British media have reported that between five and ten British citizens were on board MH17, which disappeared from radar contact around 1415 GMT as it was flying over the Russian-Ukranian border.

A British Foreign Office spokesman told AFP: "We're not going into numbers. Our first priority is to establish if any British nationals are involved."
