Roof at Brno exhibition centre collapses under snow

The roof of a building that forms part of the famous Brno exhibition complex collapsed under the weight of snow on Wednesday. No-one was injured. The building was being used as storage space and is one of the oldest parts of the site.

The latest incident follows a thaw following recent heavy snowfall. On Wednesday an elderly man suffered serious head injuries after falling when cleaning snow from a roof in Prague. A baby boy was taken to hospital with a serious head injury after ice fell on him from a Prague roof on Tuesday. A nine-year old in the centre of the country was also rushed to hospital following a similar incident.
