Rescuers in Latvia’s capital Riga are spending a second night sifting through the rubble of a supermarket that collapsed, killing dozens of people.

But they admit that hopes of finding any more survivors inside the Maxima supermarket are fading.

Officials say the weight of soil from a garden being built on the roof of the shop may have caused it to fall in.

Thursday’s collapse, which killed 51 people, is Latvia’s deadliest disaster since it became independent in 1991.
