Eight injured after mezzanine floor collapses in London bar

A number of people were taken to hospital for treatment

Eight people have been injured after a mezzanine floor collapsed at a London bar and restaurant.

The incident happened yesterday evening at Two More Years in Roach Road, Hackney Wick, east London.

London Fire Brigade (LFB) said a number of people were treated at the scene and taken to hospital after crews were called at 4.50pm.

A man who was in the venue at the time told the PA news agency: “There was just this sort of cracking sort of noise and dust started coming down.

“Me and my friend just ran to the side and the whole thing just came down in a matter of seconds.”

The man said it was lucky there were not more people sitting directly under the mezzanine floor that came down.

He saw one person being brought out on a stretcher and put into an ambulance, but he said most of the injured appeared to have cuts and bruises rather than anything serious.
