Italian police have released security camera footage showing the exact moment when the motorway bridge in Genoa collapsed on Tuesday, killing 43 people.

The footage, released on Monday, shows a cleaning truck driving underneath the bridge and a man walking by, just seconds before the part of the structure collapses sending out huge clouds of dust.

The collapse forced the evacuation of more than 600 people living in buildings underneath.

Prosecutors are investigating faulty maintenance and design as a possible cause.
