At least three people were killed when a six-storey building collapsed on Tuesday into an adjacent construction site in Greater Noida, India.

Rescuers searched through the rubble with the help of rescue dogs to try and find any people trapped in the remains of the apartment block.

The building was constructed a few years ago and police said they thought it did not have many occupants.

Building collapses in India are more common during the monsoon season, as heavy rain weakens poor building materials used in many structures, according to the police and residents.
