English-Albanian pop singer Dua Lipa has been left in tears after fans were reportedly forcibly removed from her concert in Shanghai.

Concert-goers voiced outrage on social media as they shared videos of security workers forcibly removing people from the gig during her first tour of China.

Some said people were ejected by security for standing up during the performance while others said it was because they were waving gay rights flags.

"I want to create a really safe environment for us all to have fun," Lipa said towards the end of the concert.

"I want us all to dance. I want us all to sing. I want us all to just have a really good time."

One woman said she saw an incident between several security personnel, the police and a Chinese couple.

She described the police as being "heavy-handed" and "aggressive".
