At least 10 people have died and many more are feared trapped after a building containing a school collapsed in the Nigerian city of Lagos.

The school, which was on the top floor of the four-storey building in Ita Faji on Lagos Island, had more than 100 pupils, a rescue official told the Press

About 40 pupils had been pulled out alive, the official said.

The building had been identified as “distressed” and listed for demolition, Lagos building officials told the Press

The collapse happened at about 10:00 local time (09:00 GMT). There were frantic scenes at the site as rescuers and local men searched for survivors, and family members crowded the area in the hope of finding their loved ones alive.

Weeping and wailing have rent the air as parents, nurses and others wailed as bodies of dead pupils evacuated from the three-storey collapsed building on Lagos Island were being brought to the hospital.
