The tram number 25 runs from Campo de Ourique to Praça da Figueira.

 

It hit a building and fell on its side, initially trapping about a dozen people in the wreckage and injuring others on the pavement. No one was badly hurt.

 

Local media initially reported that two children from the UK had been injured, but the Foreign Office said it believed no British people were involved.
