One person has been killed and 40 people injured at a music festival in Slovakia.

The accident happened when a giant tent fell on festival-goers at the Pohoda festival following a gust of wind during a rain storm in the western town of Trencin.

Of those injured 15 were seriously hurt at Slovakia's biggest festival.

Organisers have since cancelled the event, which was attended by more than 30,000 music fans, reports BBC News.

Bands on the bill included Pendulum, Patti Smith and Travis.

Mario Gesvantner, a spokesman for the organisers, said weather forecasts had not warned of severe storms.
