IT was nearly last orders for drinkers outside a Knightsbridge pub when its frontage collapsed almost on top of them. Customers sitting outside the Beauchamp pub were forced to scramble to safety as the 15ft metal planter above its entrance came crashing down. Drinkers today told of the moment when they were almost hit by falling plant pots and soil as the facia fell to the ground. One shocked customer, who had been standing outside when the facia fell, said: There was a bit of creaking and then a loud crash. It took everyone a while to work out what had happened. It was like something had fallen from outer-space. There was soil and broken glass everywhere, even in my drink. Around half a dozen drinkers were outside the pub when the drama occurred. A member of staff at the pub, which is popular with celebrities and footballers including Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, as well as shoppers from nearby Harrods, said: We have now taken it off. No one was injured so we were very fortunate. He added: No one complained either so it was very lucky in many ways. by bo wilson Fear garden: customers outside the Beauchamp pub were stunned when the 15ft planter, arrowed, came crashing down H index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
