Part of a roof has collapsed yesterday on FC Twente’s stadium De Grolsch Veste in Enschede, northern Holland.
The 24,000-seater stadium is undergoing a €50M (£45M) expansion to 32,000 in preparation for the new season and the collapse occurred at the end where the construction work was taking place.
One person has been killed and a further were 14 injured by the accident, a City of Enshede spokesman told NCE.
The roof fell on top of a bank of seats behind one of the goals - Dutch media say two girders had buckled.
Police and officials from the City of Enshede are investigating the cause of the accident which occurred at 12pm local time.
