This live event has finished

Francis's thumping drive clips the crossbar
Kermorgant lifts a free kick over the top.
Yann Kermorgant, on as a 70th-minute replacement for Rantie, headed narrowly past the post from a Ritchie centre.
Grabban burst through after 73 minutes but saw his effort from a tight angle turned past the post by Heaton before the goalkeeper tipped Tommy Elphick’s header over the crossbar.
Cherries sub: Rantie off, Kermorgant on, 70 mins
The Clarets levelled midway through the second half when substitutes Ross Wallace and Treacy combined to unlock the Cherries defence.
Treacy fired home at the far post after Wallace’s deflected cross had fallen invitingly for him.
Burnley appealed in vain for a penalty with Sam Vokes claiming his flick had been handled by MacDonald, although referee Graham Scott was having none of it.
Double sub for Clarets with Wallace and Treacy on for Arfield and Kightly
Rantie headed home Ian Harte's corner to register his third goal of the season and his second against the Clarets
Second half is five minutes old
Half-time 0-0. Not the best first half.
Cherries sub: MacDonald on, O'Kane off, injury
Matt Ritchie returning to the pitch sporting a bandaged head
Francis fortunate to escape after diving into a tackle on Kightly
Cherries had a scare after Harry Arter had missed his kick in the middle of the pitch, but after Kightly had threatened to capitalise, Eunan O’Kane was on hand to save the day.
Clarets defender Jason Shackell threw himself in front of Rantie to block after the South Africa international had let fly following a promising move from Cherries.
