A crew member has died at an open-air concert by pop singer Will Young after falling backstage.

The man, who was in his 40s but has not been identified, suffered severe facial and head injuries in the fall at Rochester Castle, in Kent.

Police attended the medieval castle and placed a cordon around the scene of the incident as the man was taken to hospital.

Before the show started later, an appeal was made over the public address system asking for witnesses to come forward.

2002 Pop Idol winner Young reportedly said at the end: "Someone's had an accident tonight so let's give him a round of applause and hope he gets better."

A police spokesman said: "Officers put a cordon in place and carried out an initial investigation. The man has since died from his injuries."

Officers added that his death is not being treated as suspicious and a post-mortem examination will take place.

A South East Coast Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "We got called to Rochester Castle to a report of a man in his 40s who had apparently fallen off the stage and had severe facial and head injuries and severe bleeding.

"We were on the scene within six minutes. The patient was going into cardiac arrest and he was conveyed to the Medway Maritime Hospital.

"We pre-alerted the hospital of his arrival, which suggests he was in quite a bad way."
