An audience member who was in the Apollo Theatre when part of a roof collapsed has said that panic took hold in the seats around him as debris started to fall from the ceiling.

A performance of the Curious Incident Of The Dog in the Night-Time was under way when the collapse happened.

Tom Chesshyre was sitting in the balcony.
