    I'm about 8-10 miles away, and there was a bang of some sort about 15 minutes ago. I've got all the Windows open. Constant sound of sirens of emergency services heading down the A6 in some hurry.

    The photo of the carnage through a couple of doors is supposedly a fake.

    Also, I'm not far away (20 mins) so if anyone is desperate for a lift home I can take you.

    I live in GQ less than 100m from the Arena. We heard the bang. Emergency services, including helicopters, everywhere.

    As it came after the show, hopefully it's a firework malfunction or an electrical issue and nothing more serious. As for the idiots posting images on Twitter (if they are indeed fake), hopefully they'll get a knock at the door over the next few days.

    This. Massive attention seeking morons.

    How many does the arena hold? 15k? Surely theyd be footage/pics online by now.

    I've seen 17k+ in there for the Ice Hockey a few years ago...

    Fill the floor and it's 20k probably.

    Few more Twitter folk saying it was an electrical failure like a transformer exploding rather than anything sinister. Hopefully correct and no injuries.
