'A number of children have been taken to hospital after a ceiling collapsed at a school in Dulwich, south London.


The second-floor ceiling of the Rosemead preparatory school collapsed on Monday morning, the London fire brigade said.


About 20 firefighters and three fire engines were called to the incident on Thurlow Park Road. A number of people were treated on the scene for minor injuries and some children were taken to hospital by London ambulance crews. All other children and staff were safely evacuated from the building.


Helen Hayes, the Labour MP for Dulwich and West Norwood, tweeted: ?Very concerned to hear of the collapse of a ceiling at Rosemead School this morning. My thoughts are with the children, staff and parents. I hope no one is seriously injured. I?ve contacted the school to offer my support. My thanks to the emergency services who attended the scene.?


Firefighters carried out a systematic search of the building and confirmed with the school that all pupils and staff were accounted for. The London fire brigade (LFB) was called at 9.22am and the incident was over by 11.50am.


A specialist urban search and rescue team and equipment were also used to confirm the building was ?at no further risk of collapse?, a statement from the LFB said.'
