At least four people have been seriously injured after a loud noise triggered panic and a crush among fans watching the Champions League final in Turin.

According to Sky in Italy, a railing created the sound when it fell in the city square and caused a supporter to shout “bomb”.

A wave of people was then seen lurching in one direction, causing some to fall or be crushed against railings surrounding the fan zone, which eventually gave way.

A staircase in the centre of the square, which leads to an underground car park, also fell causing some people to have a two-metre fall.

Sky in Italy say there are at least four people seriously injured, one of which is a four-year-old child.

Police said some 200 people needed hospital treatment, with two of them in a serious condition.

The incident took place around 10 minutes prior to the end of the match, which Juventus lost 4-1 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

The square was evacuated quickly and local official Renato Saccone said: “The root cause of this was panic, to understand what triggered it we will have to wait a while.”
