Britney Spears says she is "saddened" by the death of a fan who was killed after falling from a fairground ride outside a concert venue.

The 31-year-old woman was thrown to the ground from a ride next to the O2 arena in Dublin after watching the singer perform on Monday.

Britney took to her Twitter to send her condolonces.

"I was saddened to hear of the tragic accident in Dublin. My heart goes out to the family."

The woman has been named as Siobhan Healy, from Willsborough, who was understood to be living in Dublin.

Councillor Michael McGreal, a neighbour and family friend, said Ms Healy was an only child and her mother, Doreen, had lost her husband several years ago.

"The community is very shocked," he said. "I know her family very well, we are all very upset."
