A Russian Proton-M rocket carrying three navigation satellites crashes soon after takeoff from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The Spectacular footage showed the rocket veering off its trajectory just seconds after its launch at 0638 am (0238 GMT), before erupting into a ball of flames and releasing highly toxic rocket fuel into the air.

The Russian space agency Roskosmos, said the accident caused no damage or casualties.
