Romanian football match interrupted by enormous factory explosion (Video)

A match in the second tier of Romanian football was interrupted by a large explosion just a few metres from the stadium.

The game, between Brasov and Ramnicu Talea, had to be suspended when a local bread factory went up in flames behind the stand, with the television cameras covering the match capturing the explosion.

Fans abandon the game to gaze over the wall at the back of the stand, and the game was stopped with the sounds of sirens in the background.

Unfortunately there were a number of injuries and one man died in the fire.

The match was eventually restarted and completed.
