Titanic the Musical abandoned mid-voyage in Southampton

Theatre-goers were left disappointed after a performance of Titanic the Musical was abandoned when debris fell on to the stage during its opening night in Southampton.

The show was stopped when plaster from a backstage wall falling shortly after the scene in which the ship hits the iceberg.

After a short delay, an announcement was made on stage that the show was being stopped - although the audience still applauded the cast.
