A number of gig goers were injured last night in Stourbridge, when a 40-foot-high wall collapsed during a performance by Noise Pollution (no, us neither).
The wall fell down at the Rock Cafe 2000 venue, injuring ten of the 100-or-so people in the crowd. Two people suffered fractures of the pelvis, while the others were treated for cuts and bruises.
Mark Wilson, a detective inspector in the West Midlands Police force, said:
"Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collapse of the wall in conjunction with the Health and Safety Executive."
Note: the picture is NOT of Rock Cafe 2000.
DiScuss: Have you ever been to a show in a venue that seemed rather less than safe? Are there any venues near you that are in dire need of urgent TLC?
