The roof of a supermarket in the southern German town of Toeging am Inn has collapsed.

It is not clear how many people were in the building when the incident occurred but everyone was able to escape without injury, officials said.

The cause of the collapse is unknown, although the region of Bavaria did experience heavy snowfall overnight.

Last month 15 people died when snow brought down the roof of an ice rink in the Bavarian town of Bad Reichenhall.

The supermarket is part of the Netto supermarket chain.

Police say the flat roof came down onto the shop's shelves, allowing people to escape. And fire officials said the roof had sagged, rather than instantly collapsing.
