Rescuers searching for three men trapped inside a collapsed warehouse said they had found three bodies in the rubble.

The first body was found around 1.30 p.m. as firefighters dug through an estimated 50 tonnes of debris in an effort to find the men, a Humberside police spokeswoman said. The other two were found around 20 minutes later.

The three workmen were trapped on Monday when a major internal wall collapsed as they worked on the derelict warehouse in Hull, .

Around 25 firefighters had spent the day digging in the rubble, using thermal imaging cameras and sophisticated listening equipment to try to locate the men.
