MUSE REHEARSALS SPARK RICOH FIRE FEARS

Rehearsals of Muse's rock concert sparked fears across various social media platforms that Coventry's Ricoh Arena was on fire.

A picture, which was posted onto Twitter on Monday, showed part of a pyrotechnic display being rehearsed prior to Muse's concert at the all-seater venue on Wednesday.

The image and accompany tweet was retweeted more than 400 times and although no emergency calls were made, Liz Cooper, marketing director from Ricoh Arena, said the stadium received various phone calls of concern.
