Spectators injured after partial collapse of stand

Three spectators suffered injuries, and a further 200 had to be moved to another part of the ground, following the partial collapse of a temporary stand at the Emirates Riverside during the T20I between England and West Indies.

The incident took place midway during England's innings, in the north-east corner of the ground. According to reports, a section of the floor appeared to have caved in, and there were reports that a female spectator had been injured after falling through the hole.

A statement from Durham County Cricket Club read: "During the course of the second innings between England v West Indies at Emirates Riverside, three spectators were injured when a small section of the North-East Terrace flooring became unstable causing them to fall.

"Stewards took precautionary action and evacuated that area of the stand efficiently. The stand is a permanent fixture at the venue and had passed inspections in the week prior to the match."
