At least 23 people have been killed and dozens injured after a metro overpass collapsed in Mexico City while a train was travelling on it, officials say.

Several train carriages plunged to the ground, crushing at least one car, which was on a busy road underneath.

Rescue workers and firefighters are searching for survivors after the accident in the capital late on Monday.

Dramatic footage has emerged showing the overpass collapsing at the Olivos station on the metro’s Line 12.

Local residents had reported cracks in the structure after a deadly 2017 earthquake, according to local media. Mexico’s El Universal newspaper says transport authorities made repairs following the reports.
