One person has died and two injured after a bridge collapsed during repair work on Istanbul’s Metrobus line.

The connecting bridge was being built across the E-5 highway when a large section of concrete fell from the side of the bridge.

The accident halted the Metrobus services and caused a significant traffic back-up on the E-5 highway.
