At least 15 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.

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