A three-storey building has collapsed this morning in Mumbai’s Bhendi Bazaar area. Three people have been rescued, but about 20 are still feared trapped, the police said.

More than two dozen people were living in the old and dilapidated Arsiwala building on Maulana Shaukat Ali Road in the busy marketplace.

Rescue teams have been rushed to the accident site. A team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is at the spot as are 10 fire engines.
