I've seen on the news that there has been an incident at the Apollo Theatre in London tonight. Just wanted to say I hope everyone is ok and that I'm so sorry for the families who went there to enjoy a special night. Thinking of them all xx

BBC item here

Roof came down. It says there are casualties, but everyone is out.

Fire Brigade saying 4 people seriously injured. No fatalities reported.

It wasn't the balcony, it was part of the ceiling which came down.

Really bad news, let's hope that all the families are reunited now as the tv said that some parents were looking for their children

I just posted this on the thread in 'chat':

"They say about 700 people in the audience. Somewhere over 40 walking wounded. Some taken to hospital (numbers vary according to outlet - between 5 and 25: no word on whether serious). Everyone out of the theatre."

I hope the injuries are not serious.
