A PERFORMANCE at The Courtyard in Hereford this evening was stopped after a fire alarm rang during the show.

Two fire crews attended and a performance of Fiddler on the Roof, by Hereford Cathedral School, was disrupted.

Audience members were asked to evacuate the theatre for a short time while fire crews checked the building.

The Courtyard have confirmed that there was a minor fire in the light fitting of the kitchen and have thanked everyone for their patience.
