MICHAEL JACKSON'S concert at Wembley Stadium was cancelled 10 minutes before he was due to go on stage in front of 72,000 people last night. He was thought to have flu. Bob Jones, of MJJ Productions, said: 'He felt dizzy this evening and a doctor was called. The show was cancelled on the advice of a physician.'

A doctor had arrived with a police escort at the Dorchester Hotel, where the entertainer is staying. Sergeant Mike Rawson, who was on duty there, said: 'We had to decide how to tell 72,000 disappointed people that they were not going to see Michael.'
