Robbers steal £210,000 from Justin Bieber concert

Police in South Africa are investigating how robbers were able to break into a strong-room at the Johannesburg Soccer City Stadium and make off with more than three million rand (£210,000).

Takings from Justin Bieber's Sunday night concert and an earlier concert by the U.S rockers Bon Jovi were taken in the raid.

Officials didn't realise the money was missing until Monday morning.

Police from the nearby Booysens Police Station in Soweto said the robbers had used hammers and chisels to smash their way into the room.
