The ceiling of a packed London theatre collapsed on the audience during a performance yesterday, wounding 88 people including children and leaving terrified theatregoers covered in blood and rubble.

A sell-out crowd of around 720 people was in the Apollo Theatre watching "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" when ornate masonry fell some five storeys onto their heads.

Witnesses said they heard creaking noises in the 112-year-old theatre before the collapse but thought it was part of the show, which was packed out with families the week before Christmas.
