New York’s Central Park was the scene of a short period of mass panic among thousands of spectators at a festival when a fence fell over.

The sound of the falling fence made some people think of gunshots, after which they started running towards the nearest exit. The event made clear that people are afraid of a repeat of what happened on 1 October 2017, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada.

Last night in New York, approximately 60,000 people had gathered around eight o'clock in the evening on the big grass field of Central Park for the World Citizen Festival.

Politicians and musicians attended to discuss the worrying political climate in the US. Suddenly a police fencing structure (which was meant to keep the crowd in check) fell and the noise made some people assume it was the sound of gunshots.

The elevated fear of mass shootings was clear from the ensuing panic that broke out.

Mr Chris Martin, the Coldplay frontman who was performing at the time, tried to calm the audience from the stage.

The police rushed to the stage to make it clear to those present that nothing was wrong and that everyone was safe, but by that moment some of the spectators had already been overrun.

According to the New York fire brigade, nobody was injured.

An NBC producer tweeted: “Almost overrun. Holding your wife firmly in the middle of the field because people are running away in panic everywhere is not my favourite activity. I'm going home.''
