The theatre was evacuated part way through the last night of a six-day long run of Ben Elton’s hit Queen musical We Will Rock You.

Eyewitnesses said the fire alarm went off between scenes and someone appeared on the stage and asked them to leave.

The fire service say they sent three engines to the scene after smoke was reported in the theatre.
