At least seven people have died and more than 30 others are feared trapped beneath a collapsed building in Mumbai, following torrential rains in India’s financial hub.

One body has been found and a second victim was later declared dead at hospital, while eight survivors have been pulled from the rubble, a police official told Reuters news agency.

The structure, is located in Mumbai’s Dongri neighbourhood, an area full of narrow streets with closely packed blocks, some nearly a century old.

Nearly a month’s average rainfall fell on Mumbai on Tuesday and authorities say days of heavy rains may have weakened the building.
