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.
Well that was eventful- the ceiling at the Piccadilly Theatre fell in whilst watching #DeathOfASalesman. Incredibly efficient evacuation by the staff & very excited to hear @WendellPierce up close but sad not to see the play. Hopefully no one injured pic.twitter.com/iXPLDZpupV
