SCRIPT
A landslide caused a 30 metre (100 feet) section of a motorway bridge to collapse near the Italian city of Savona, on Sunday, as torrential rain continues to wreak havoc in the north of the country.
The massive section of the A6 motorway towards Turin was completely destroyed as police can be seen on site. No deaths or injuries were reported in the incident.
Northern Italy and south-east France have seen significant damage in recent days, including several deaths, due to the ongoing heavy rain and flooding, while the city of Venice was underwater again on Sunday.
