Building Collapse


A search has begun for trapped people after a four-storey building collapsed in east London. Emergency services were called to Commercial Road, Whitechapel, at 1640 GMT on Tuesday following reports of a building partially collapsing. Sound tests are being carried out on the building to determine whether people are trapped inside. Six people have so far been treated for minor injuries at the scene but none needed to go to hospital.

The building was being refurbished when it partially collapsed.
