Possibly builders waiting for news on a trapped colleague?

The sound of the collapse could be heard from the library. Tomi Fasan, first year Economic History student, heard the commotion and was forced to evacuate.

She said: “I heard a couple of loud bangs and sirens while I was working but thought nothing of it until the evacuation announcements. LSE must be cursed…”

The library is now closed until the end of the day.
