WORLD CUP STADIUM DAMAGED

One of Brazil's World Cup stadiums, in Fortaleza, has been damaged after supporters clashed.

World Cup organisers have said around 100 seats were damaged at the Arena Castelao after Fortaleza missed out on promotion to the Brazilian Second Division.

Local media reports suggested that the number of destroyed seats could, in fact, be in the thousands.

No serious injuries were reported from the stadium, where six matches will take place in next year's tournament.
