A worker building a monorail in Brazil's biggest city, Sao Paulo, has died after a section of the prestigious project collapsed.

The authorities at the scene said at least two others had been injured.

The 17.7km monorail was originally meant to be completed for the football World Cup which starts in three days time, but it is behind schedule.

Aerial footage shows extensive damage to the structure, as Katy Watson reports.
