He said there was water dripping before the collapse. He said that afterward "everyone got up and streamed down the stairs".

The 1,200-capacity venue was evacuted at around 8pm - 30 minutes in to the show - and emergency services arrived on the scene shortly after.

He then added: "I would like to thank you all for one, safely evacuating". A few minor injuries.

The London ambulance service, London fire brigade and Met police were called to the scene and road closures are in place around the theatre, Scotland Yard said.

Chris Rogers tweeted: A big shout out to the ushers at the @TeamPiccadilly theatre from me, an usher at @oldvictheatre.
