A stand at Worcester Warriors' Sixways ground was shut after a TV camera crane collapsed.

The crane fell behind the north stand before the team's Rugby Union Premier League fixture against London Wasps.

A cameraman who was working on the crane when it collapsed was unhurt. The stand was closed as a precaution and spectators with tickets for that stand were given different seats.

About 6,500 people watched Worcester lose 11-13.
