(Rock News Desk) Rock band the Smith Westerns have told how they ran for their lives as a storm brought down the stage they were playing on in Belgium yesterday.

Five people have now been reported dead with over 70 injured after two stages, equipment, sound towers, tents and trees were torn down in just a few minutes of heavy wind and hail at the 60,000 capacity Pukkelpop festival.

The rest of the event, due to feature the Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds to Mars and the Offspring, has now been cancelled. It's the fourth serious incident of the year following the death of five people at the Indiana State Fair last weekend and similar but non-fatal events in Tulsa and Ottawa. more on this story
