    The collapse of a motorway bridge in Genoa has prompted the Italian government to consider taking charge of the entire motorway network - away from private companies and contractors.

    And while an investigation into what happened may take some time, hundreds of people displaced by the bridge collapse are wondering where they will sleep for the night.
