Plaster collapses on central Rome street

Two cars were extensively damaged in Rome's historic centre after plaster from an adjacent building collapsed on top of them.

The incident took place on Via Fiume at the corner of Via di Ripetta at around 08.00 on 4 February.

There was nobody under the building at the time of the collapse.

That section of the street has been sealed off for safety reasons and authorities are currently assessing the condition of the building.
