Solidarity across the Riviera for victims of the Genoa bridge disaster

Solidarity across the Riviera for victims of the Genoa bridge disaster - The Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi has offered equipment to help with rescue efforts after news of the Genoa bridge disaster broke. Genoa is just 200km away and the city council in Nice was in contact with the Italian consulate to find out what was needed. Nice's hospitals have also been on standby ready to take any casualties.

In other parts of the region the council in Cannes has also offered help, flying flags at half-mast at city hall and the historic Château de la Castre. Further along the Mediterranean coast, Marseille, which is twinned with Genoa, was "filled with sorrow" by the news, according to its mayor, Jean-Claude Gaudin. "In the name of all Marseillaises and Marseillais, I offer my sincere condolences to the bereaved families and wish the injured a prompt recovery."
