category international | miscellaneous | other press author Thursday February 10, 2005 11:49author by pat c Report this post to the editors

Well, theres an IKEA Store coming to an area near you quite soon. Watch out for the stampede!

Several people were hurt in the crush as thousands flocked to the midnight opening of Ikea's newest store. The shop stayed open for just 30 minutes because of safety fears at the store in Edmonton, north London.

Five people were taken to hospital, one with chest pains, and up to 20 suffered from heat exhaustion.

Police said the stabbing of a man, in his 20s, near the store at about 0130 GMT was unrelated. (Well they would say that. pc) He was also taken to hospital where his condition is stable.
