Woman falls through stand during Trooping the Colour

A woman is feared to have been injured after falling through a stand during a Trooping the Colour event.

Crowds of tourists and locals who had turned up for the event were evacuated by the emergency services as a result of the incident.

Reports from live at the scene suggest that proceedings, being reviewed by The Major General, were interrupted, the Mirror reports.

One witness said: "At Trooping the colour, part of stand, where spectators sat, has partially collapsed. No news of injuries."

Zoe Clark-Coates added: "What we just witnessed was terrifying, but we are safe!

"Part of the floor in the stand collapsed, and at least one person fell through. We are praying for the injured and shocked.

"The stands are being evacuated."

Another person described the situation as "chaos."

She explained: "We were told to stand and heard a scream and then there was chaos in the section.

"Turned out part of it had collapsed and a woman had fallen through. The paramedics rushed in but started yelling ‘we can’t find her.'

"She was extracted after several minutes and seemed fine but badly shaken and was put on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance.

"The crowd was calm but was later moved out of that section.

"Then a second section had a similar collapse and the crowd was moved but with no one falling through.

"The striking thing was that there seemed to be complete confusion with police about what to do and where to find the victim under the bleachers.

"But the medics did the best they could with no guidance."

Today's event is almost identical to Trooping the Colour reviewed by the Queen.

However, it excludes the Guardsmen Street Lining on the Mall and extra mounted who officers ride when the Queen is present.

Up to 1,450 soldiers of the Household

Normal People’s Paul Mescal and musician Phoebe Bridgers kiss on street like giddy teenagers amid engagement rumours
Whether Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers are engaged or not, they are clearly just as in love as ever and don’t care who knows it. The Normal People actor and his singer-songwriter girlfriend, who have been dating for two years, were pictured leaving a yoga class in Los Angeles last week but the hot and sweaty action didn’t stop once they left the studio. With both of their yoga mats tucked firmly under his arm (we love a man who can multitask), Paul, 26, swooped Phoebe, 27, into his available arm and planted a kiss on the musician, who in turn went in for the kill passionately with one hand around his neck and the other on his waist. Moments earlier, Phoebe had emerged from the yoga class with a huge smile on her face so the exercise – and Paul – must be doing something right.The couple have kept fans guessing about the status of their relationship as the engagement rumours continue to swirl. Last month, the stars attended Coachella music festival in California where Phoebe reportedly introduced Paul to others as her ‘fiance’. A partygoer claimed that the pair made no secret of the fact they were engaged, according to The Sun, but she hasn’t been seen wearing an engagement ring. Paul and Phoebe were first linked in May 2020 when the indie musician watched Sally Rooney’s Normal People.She tweeted: ‘Finished Normal People and now I’m sad and horny – oh, wait…’Irish actor Paul responded simply with: ‘I’m officially dead.’The exchange quickly led to a blossoming friendship and the two collaborating on Phoebe’s Savior Complex music video.Phoebe later admitted to NME that she thought Paul was a ‘cute boy’ after watching his hit BBC series, and that her heart did ‘a little pitter-patter’ when he followed her back on
