Forty people, including two Britons, were injured early last Sunday morning when the floor of a nightclub collapsed in southern Tenerife.

The nightspot called Butterfly, in the popular resort of Playa de las Américas, was packed at the time with holidaymakers who were thrown three metres into the basement.

The local council has sealed off other units in the same building while the cause of the collapse is being investigated.
