Four people were injured following the collapse of the roof of part of a gallery between the São Sebastião metro station and Praça de Espanha as initially reported by TVI.

The Câmara de Lisboa stated, via Twitter, that the accident was due to "a technical error" in the work that had been done in the area, "it is not a matter of maintenance problems" in the metro.

The circulation between Laranjeiras and Marquês de Pombal has been suspended for a few days.
