Fans are injured at JLS concert

X Factor finalists JLS

Five teenage girls have been hurt at a concert by X Factor finalists JLS.

About 2,000 people were queuing outside Fairfield Halls in south London on Monday to see the boy band perform.

Fans pushed forward to try to get tickets for the free concert, and some of them were crushed by the people behind them.

Four of the injured girls were taken to hospital with minor injuries. One of them had hurt her hand and another had trouble breathing.

JLS are through to the X Factor final this weekend along with Eoghan Quigg and Alexandra Burke.
