Yesterday we reported that a stage collapsed at Pukkelpop Festival. At the time we didn't know how many people had been hurt, or had died, but now reports are suggesting that five people have died, and over 70 people have been injured.

Due to the tragic events, Pukkelpop has been cancelled.

This is what the organisers had to say:

"Pukkelpop is in deep mourning. We truly sympathise with the families and friends of the victims. Words are not enough. We have struggled with the decision to continue the festival. Therefore we have decided to cancel Pukkelpop 2011. What has happened is very exceptional and could not have been predicted. We are deeply moved by all the spontaneous support the festival goers and the organisation have received. We call on all Pukkelpoppers to return home calmly. Extra buses and trains have been organised to bring everybody home. We ask everyone to understand that this decision was extremely difficult to make."
