THREE people died after a residential building collapsed in the northern city of Santander.

Rescue workers found the body of a 70-year-old woman soon after the four-storey building fell on December 8.

Her son, 50, and a third person were found the following day.

Mayor Inigo de la Serna said illegal refurbishing work on an adjacent building may have caused the collapse – the fourth in recent years.
