Some 27 young people, most of them children, were injured in Finland on Thursday when a temporary footbridge by a construction site collapsed and they fell several metres onto a road, rescuers said.

"Approximately 27 youths, mostly minors, have been injured, to varying degrees," the Western Uusimaa rescue department in Espoo, near the capital Helsinki, said in a statement.
