India: deadly flyover collapse kills at least 14

A flyover under construction in Kolkata, India, has collapsed killing at least 14 people.

A 100-metre slab of metal and cement crashed onto moving traffic below, pinning down dozens of people.

The death toll is expected to rise as up to 70 people are believed to be trapped in the debris, according to a disaster management official.

Locals and rescue workers alike could be seen trying to help those under the rubble.

A senior police officer confirmed at least 15 critically injured people had been rescued.

The bridge has missed several completion deadlines since construction began in 2009.
