A rock music festival in western Germany, Rock am Ring, is being evacuated over a “terrorist threat”, the organisers have announced.

Fans began streaming out of the venue in Nuerburg after the organisers asked them to leave “in a calm and controlled manner”.

“Due to a terrorist threat the police have advised us to interrupt the festival,” they said.

A bomb at a concert in Manchester claimed 22 lives last month.

Some 85,000 people were expected to visit the three-day festival, Efe news agency reports. It falls on the Pentecost holiday weekend.
