Britney 'saddened' by fan's death

Britney Spears has said she was "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 the Tip Top ride next to the O2 arena in Dublin after watching the Toxic singer perform on Monday.

In a statement, the singer said: "I was saddened to hear of the tragic accident in Dublin. My heart goes out to the family."

The woman has been named locally as Siobhan Healy, from Willsborough, outside Ballinlough in Co Roscommon, 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."

Gardai said the incident happened at around 11.20pm at the Point Village next to the O2, where Ms Healy had earlier been to see the star, who is touring Europe with her Femme Fatale show.

It is believed she fell from a ride called the Tip Top, which was run by funfair operator Kenneth McFadden, owner of McFadden's Entertainment.

Mr McFadden said he was devastated for the woman's family.

"We can't say (what happened), it all happened so quick," he said. "We are just in bits at the moment, we are just devastated."
