It has been confirmed that at least 40 people have died after a platform at a power plant construction site in east China collapsed.

China’s news agency Xinhua has reported that a number of workers at the site of the Ganneng Fengcheng coal-fired power project remain trapped under rubble inside a cooling tower and that rescue efforts are continuing.

Five people are receiving medical treatment in hospital, Xinhua added.
