Irish pop group Westlife were forced to interrupt their concert in Jakarta earlier this week amid fears for crowd safety.

It is unknown whether warning signs were present at the concert when fans began to surge forward, leading to worries that people could be crushed if swift action was not taken. The boyband was forced to leave the stage for half an hour while the problem was resolved.

Posting on his Twitter account, group member Kian said: "We had to stop our show in Indonesia for 30 minutes for the safety of our fans. We feared someone would die. Thankfully no one did."

Westlife were in Jakarta as part of their tour of the Far East.

Safety worries have also led to the cancellation of a bonfire in Saratt this year, according to the Watford Observer.

Concerns over the distance between crowds, fireworks and bonfires is the reason why the bonfire will not take place.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800751619-ADNFCR
