Ceiling collapses at London theatre

20 Dec 13 Approximately 80 people were injured last night when a section of ceiling collapsed in a London theatre.

All the dust-covered injured managed to walk away from the building, although some injuries were described as 'serious'.

The collapse occurred shortly after 8pm during a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Apollo Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue.

Fire crews were on the scene within three minutes after a large chunk of ceiling plaster came down onto the balcony.

The theatre, built in 1901, seats 755 people and is owned by Nimax Theatres.
