The Ligue 1 fixture between Amiens and Lille had to be suspended early in the first half after a barrier collapsed in the away section of the Stade de la Licorne.

The incident occurred 15 minutes into the game after Fode Ballo-Toure had put Marcelo Bielsa's side ahead at the same end of the ground where the visiting supporters were situated.

While Lille celebrated the goal a section of the stadium gave way, resulting in a number of their fans falling forwards.

Officials stopped play while paramedics attended those hurt, with Amiens later tweeting a security meeting would decide whether play would be resumed.
