TORONTO (AP) - Canadian police say the man killed in a stage collapse hours before a Radiohead concert was British.

Toronto Police spokesman Tony Vella said Sunday the man in his mid-30s, who was trapped under the rubble and pronounced dead at the scene, was from the United Kingdom. He could not provide further information about his identity.

Three others were injured when the top portion of the stage collapsed as the crew was setting up Saturday in Downsview Park. Vella said a 45-year-old man hospitalized with a head injury was improving and his life was not in danger. The other two were treated at the scene.

The Ontario Ministry of Labor, which is leading the investigation into the collapse, did not return messages.

Radiohead said on its website that fans will get refunds.
