Dramatic Ukraine water pipe explosion captured on CCTV

CCTV cameras have captured the moment an underground water pipe exploded in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

The ground rises and shakes before bursting, sending earth and debris flying in all directions, and a torrent of muddy water down the street.

Cars were damaged and windows broken but no injuries were reported.

It is unclear what caused the pipe to explode on Monday.
