Most, if not all, of the workers hurt when a scaffolding and bridge under construction collapsed worked for a Polish subcontractor to Skanska, according to Swedish news agency TT.

The local head of the Swedish building union said as far as he knows none of those injured were members of his union.

The incident happened in Ludvika, in central Sweden's Dalarna region, where twelve people were hurt - six seriously, but none with life-threatening injuries, according to the local health authority.

The head of personnel at Skanska, Jonas Andé, told Swedish Radio they do not know the reason for the collapse, and are distraught.

A prosecutor has been appointed and on Friday the Work Environment Authority with visit the site and decide whether a criminal investigation is necessary.
