People injured as railing collapses at Snoop Dogg concert

At least 10 people have been hurt after a railing collapsed during an outdoor concert by Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa in the US.

A partition separating concert-goers from the stage at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, collapsed, causing people to fall onto the concrete below.

The incident happened shortly before 10.30pm on Friday local time, or 3.30am on Saturday morning in the UK.

Camden County officials said 10 to 15 people were hurt, with five taken to hospital. Their condition is unknown at present.

Concert-goer Katie Colbridge said the gig, which was about halfway through, stopped abruptly when the accident happened. The show was then cancelled.
