A road collapse has plunged a row of parked cars into an underground water pipeline.

Firefighters have been working to prevent other possible road collapses.

The 200-metre long hole opened up early on Wednesday morning along the Arno river bank close to the famous Ponte Vecchio.

Some local residents have been evacuated as a precaution.

A firefighter report says the hole was caused by the collapse of the water pipe.

There have been no casualties.
