Starbucks is investigating one of its Bromley coffee shops after its ceiling fell down and injured two customers.

The American chain confirmed the incident today (Aug 15), which saw a partial collapse at its Bromley High Street branch yesterday afternoon. 

London Ambulance Service said it treated two casualties and both were taken to the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH). 

A spokeswoman said: "We got a call at 2.15pm to reports of a ceiling collapse at Starbucks in Bromley.

"We sent a single responder and an ambulance. There were two patients who were taken to the PRUH." 

News Shopper understands one of those injured was a young boy - but the casualties have not been formerly identified. 

A Starbucks spokesperson told News Shopper: "We are investigating the cause of this incident. 

"The safety of our customers and partners (employees) is our highest priority."

Regular customer Hayley Slevin was disappointed at being met by closed doors yesterday and tweeted a photo of the coffee shop boarded up.

Yesterday morning I walked past Starbucks and wondered why there were screens and they told me what had happened.

Luckily no one was seriously injured.

Hope it won't be too long before normal service resumes.

Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured!
Anyways, you can move to the other two nearby coffee houses.
