Questions are being asked about what more can be done to halt illegal construction projects in India, after 74 people died in a building collapse.

The unauthorised high-rise residential building in Mumbai was still under construction when it came crashing down.

Illegal projects such as this are a widespread problem in Indian cities, as there is a major shortage of housing in urban areas.
