Three people have been hurt after part of the set at the Camden Roundhouse collapsed onto the audience during a live acrobatics show last night.
The London Ambulance service were called to the venue just before 8 o'clock, half an hour into the performance.
Toby Sadler has the details.
We were about half an hour into the spectacular Fuerzabruta performance, when one of the big vertical acts - a sail likestructure with two performers on top - collapsed into half of the audience.

It was hard to work out what had happened at first, but we were quickly ushered out and it was clear something had gone very wrong.
Luckily, it sounds like there were no serious injuries"
Approximately 30 minutes into the performance, a piece of moving stage equipment on which two artists were performing suffered a technical failure and fell slowly into an area where audience members were standing.
The equipment was brought in for the production and was not part of the Roundhouse structure.
The show was stopped and the performance space was cleared immediately.
– The Roundhouse
A handful of injuries were reported, and whilst extremely regrettable, fortunately none of these injuries were serious.Those affected were seen by medics and four people - including one performer - were treated for minor injuries.
The Roundhouse is committed to the safety and well-being of its audiences and undertakes rigorous risk assessments for all of the shows that take place here. We are investigating what led to the issues experienced during this performance."
