Spanish emergency services say five people have been taken to a hospital with injuries after the front wall of a warehouse collapsed onto a street in the southwestern Madrid suburb of Fuenlabrada.

Madrid's rescue service, ambulance service and Red Cross Emergencies all showed images on their Twitter accounts of how the wall of a large warehouse used to store Chinese products ready for distribution had detached from the main body of the building and buried part of the street, causing a lamppost to buckle under the weight of the rubble. Two cars and a delivery vehicle were trapped by bricks.

Several ambulances and firefighting vehicles attended the scene of Saturday's accident. The ambulance services did not give details of injuries sustained.
