Thirty Manchester United supporters have been killed in a freak accident in Nigeria.

The fans were watching the Reds play Anderlecht in their Europa League encounter when a power cable fell on them in the city of Calabar.

The electrical cable is thought to have fallen on to a building where the fans were watching the match on TV. Thirty were electrocuted as a further fifty escaped.

The Manchester club tweeted “Our thoughts go out the United fans, their friends and families affected by the tragedy in Calabar.”

A witnessed said a transformer exploded at the viewing centre, which caused the high tension cable to drop on the building.

There was a loud bang, then the cable fell on the building.
