Several people have been hurt after part of a ceiling collapsed at a theatre in London's West End.

Emergency services were called this evening after the incident happened during a performance of Death of a Salesman at the Piccadilly Theatre.

The theatre has been evacuated.

Witnesses reported there had been a "slight dripping sound" and "running water" followed by "lots of screams" from audience members as a section of the ceiling came crashing down.

The production features Hollywood actor Wendell Pierce, with the star coming out afterwards to check everyone was okay.

Police said everyone had left the theatre and a few had minor injuries.
