Saturday night's Ligue 1 match between Amiens and Lille is abandoned after a barrier collapsed in the 15th minute of the fixture at the Stade de la Licorne.

According to reports, a barrier buckled as fans celebrated Fode Ballo-Toure's goal, and dozens fell about one and a half metres onto the pitch.

Somme prefect Philippe De Mester said the stadium was being refurbished but insisted the painting and roofing work has nothing to do with the collapse. Moreover, before the game there were a security inspection of the venue.
