    According to a report from Sky News, many who were outside the venue on Thursday night tried and were able to force their way in, leading to overcrowding in the venue and the gig being cancelled half way through.

    An announcement inside the venue told fans: “The reason we have to stop the show is because they have breached the doors. You’ve got 3,000 people have broken the doors outside and because of security the police have asked us to close the show.”

    The message added: “This is nothing to do with us. There are people who’ve breached the door. They have broken in and security are trying to help with it.”

    The Met Police’s Ade Adelekan called the incident “extremely distressing,” adding in a statement: “This is an extremely upsetting incident which has left four people critically ill in hospital. My thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.

    “A police investigation has been launched, and it will be as thorough and as forensic as necessary to establish exactly what happened last night. The scene will be examined by specialist officers, CCTV will be viewed, every witness that we can make contact with will be spoken to and all other lines of enquiry will be followed.

    “Officers are remaining in the area to provide reassurance to the local community in and around Brixton.”
