Festival stage collapse kills one

A music fan has been killed and 15 others injured after a concert stage collapsed at a festival in Canada.

The accident at the Big Valley Jamboree, 60 miles (96.6km) from Edmonton, occurred shortly before the Hollywood star Kevin Costner was due to perform a set with his band.

Strong winds are being blamed for the collapse.
