Mezzanine floor collapses in London bar
People are being treated by paramedics after a mezzanine collapsed at a London bar and restaurant.
The incident happened on Saturday night at Two More Years in Roach Road, Hackney Wick, east London.
Emergency services are responding to the incident.
The London Ambulance Service (LAS) said it has sent a number of resources to Roach Road and teams are treating patients at the scene.
Metropolitan Police said they were called by LAS at 4.47pm to reports of a partial building collapse at a pub.
A man who was in the room at the time told the PA news agency: ‘There was just this kind of crackling noise and dust starting to fall.
“My friend and I just ran sideways and everything fell apart in seconds.”
The man said it was lucky there weren’t more people sitting directly under the mezzanine going down.
He saw one person being brought on a stretcher and put into an ambulance, but said most of the injured appeared to have cuts and bruises rather than anything serious.
An LAS spokesperson said: ‘We were called at 4.44pm today to Roach Road, Hackney Wick to reports that part of a building had collapsed.
“We sent a number of resources to the scene.
“Teams are caring for patients at the scene and working closely with colleagues in the emergency services. More information to follow.
A police cordon has since been lifted.
