A tram that derailed in the Lapa district of Lisbon on Friday evening has caused 28 light injuries according to firefighters.

The tram came off the rails at the junction of Rua São Domingos à Lapa and Rua Garcia de Orta.

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.
