At least four people have been killed and hundreds more injured in central Colombia when part of a wooden stand collapsed during a bullfight.

The disaster took place in a stadium in the city of El Espinal in Tolima state on Sunday during a traditional event called “corraleja”, in which members of the public enter the ring to engage the bulls.

Videos taken during the bullfight show a three-storey section of the stands collapsing, throwing dozens of people to the ground.
