    Demolition experts have blown up what remains of the Morandi bridge in the Italian city of Genoa nearly a year after the structure collapsed, BBC reports.

    Thousands of people were evacuated ahead of explosions to bring down two large towers consisting of about 4,500 tonnes of concrete and steel.

    Forty-three people were killed when part of the bridge, and cars travelling along it, fell 45m (148ft) last August.
