Dramatic bridge collapse injures two in Italy

A bridge on a main road in Italy has collapsed into a river, injuring two truck drivers.

The incident happened shortly before 10:30 local time but the normally busy route was almost empty as a result of the coronavirus lockdown.

The two lightly injured men were taken to hospital.

Footage showed a long stretch of the bridge lying in ruins in the river Magra near the town of Aulla.

The spot is about midway between Florence and Genoa.
