Robbie Williams apparently accidentally broke a fan's arm after falling off stage during one of his shows.

Video footage of the incident - which took place at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena last month - has emerged, and shows the former Take That star reaching out to high-five fans before losing his footing and crashing into the crowd.

Robbie, 40, apparently bumped into a woman who is thought to have been in the front row - 52-year-old Margaret Nash - and she was left with an injured arm.

She was looked after by medics before being taken to hospital and it was later revealed that her arm was broken.

The Daily Mirror quoted the venue's general manager Paul Tattenden as saying: "We attended to the lady after she said she had pain in her arm.

"We were later told she had broken it. We got in touch with Robbie's production company and they have been in touch with the lady."

A friend said: "She's still in a lot of pain. She was devastated to miss the show."
