At least five people have been killed and dozens injured after a footbridge collapsed near Mumbai's main train station.

At least five people have been killed and dozens injured after a footbridge collapsed near Mumbai's main train station.

The bridge collapsed at 7.30pm local time (14:00 GMT) as commuters were entering Chhatrapati Shivaji station.

At least 30 people have been injured, according to Indian media.

Images from the scene show rescue workers attempting to move the rubble and treating injured passers-by.

The incident comes less than a year after a footbridge collapsed in Varanasi, killing at least 18 people. 

The flyover was still being built when portions of its structure fell on the road being used under it.

In September last year, one person was killed and several others injured when a section of a bridge collapsed in Kolkata.
