Love Parade DJ: 'We were told to carry on'

At least 19 people have been killed at the Love Parade dance music festival in the German city of Duisburg, police have said.

Police had been trying to stop people reaching the parade area because of overcrowding.

British DJ Mark Knight, who played at the festival, told the BBC's Annita McVeigh that organisers told him to carry on performing for fear of more panic.
