Hundreds of Burnley FC supporters have had to evacuate from a stand mid-match after a piece of metal was spotted hanging from the roof.

The Clarets were taking on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Turf Moor tonight (Tuesday).

The club posted: "Burnley fans are in the process of being moved from a section of the Jimmy McIlroy stand due to current safety concerns with the roof.

“We thank supporters for their cooperation and patience while we do this.”

Lancashire Telegraph:

Fans who had to move were taken to the club's Fan Zone to watch the remainder of the game.

The game ended a 1-1 draw, after Jacob Bruun Larsen's opener was cancelled out by a goal from Rayan Ait-Nouri in first-half injury time.

The result leaves Vincent Kompany's side in 19th spot in the Premier League table, four points clear of Sheffield United - who have two games in hand on the Clarets - and six points adrift from safety with just seven games left in the season.
