Six people remain in hospital following on from Sunday’s boardwalk collapse in Vigo that left a total of 442 people injured.
Yesterday two of those who were badly injured in the collapse of the structure were discharged from hospital. One of those still undergoing treatment remains in intensive care.
The investigation has commenced into the causes of the incident, with the president of the Port Authority of Vigo saying that responsibility for the safety of the pier was with the city council after an agreement made in 1992 – something the authorities dispute.
A 51-year-old woman has been detained by Policia Nacional after causing an explosion at a hospital in Tenerife.
The suspect is understood to have set fire to an oxygen bottle near to the pediatric emergency area at the Candelaria hospital. The official reason for her actions have not been disclosed.
160 patients were in the accident and emergency department at the time of the incident, however no one was injured as a result of the blaze.
The A&E department reopened to patients yesterday evening.

Over 20mm of rain per square metre is expected to fall every hour between the hours of 2pm until 10pm.
People are being adivsed to remain cautious for localised flooding and lightning, which could cause damage or disruption.
