Florence road collapses, burying cars and cutting water supply

Parked cars are seen in a chasm after a road running next to the River Arno collapsed, in Florence

A stretch of street collapsed in central Florence early Wednesday, dropping a row of parked cars into an underground pipeline and cutting water supplies to part of the ancient city.

About 200 metres (650 ft) of road running up to the famous Ponte Vecchio caved in when a major waterpipe it was sitting on broke, city mayor Dario Nardella said.

Around 20 cars fell into the newly created ditch, awash with water, but no one was injured.
