Dozens of people are reported to be dead after a large section of a road bridge collapsed in the northern Italian city of Genoa.

Rescue workers say about 10 vehicles were involved when a 200m (650ft) section of the Morandi Bridge collapsed during a sudden and violent storm.

The Italian Ambulance Service says there are "dozens of dead", local news agency Adnkronos reported.

One person has been rescued alive from the rubble and flown to hospital by helicopter, ANSA news agency reported.

Video showing parts of the structure falling into the water has been posted to Twitter by local police.

Around 200 firefighters are responding to the accident and have told the Associated Press they are concerned about gas lines.
