Council officials have launched an investigation into an incident which left ten young people in need of hospital treatment after a wall collapsed on them outside of a club.
More than 700 people aged between 14 and 19 were queuing for an event for teenagers at the Rock Cafe 2000 in Mill Race Lane, Stourbridge, on Wednesday night when the 6ft wall collapsed.
Ten people were taken to hospital. Seven were described as walking wounded and three received treatment for serious injuries, including head injuries and a broken leg, at Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley.
Dudley Council officials said the wall was not owned by the council but it would be investigating the cause of the accident.
John Millar, director of urban environment, said: "Records indicate that the wall is not in the ownership of the local council.
"However, council structural engineers and environmental health officers are on site to investigate this incident and to ensure the wall and surrounding area are safe."
Mark Ellis, the club's owner, said the accident could not have been foreseen.
"It was one of the busiest nights of the year for us, simply because of half term.
They were queuing round the corner into the car park with some of them sitting on a wall above the crowd or leaning against the wall," he said.
"It must have buckled under the weight and that is when it came tumbling down on a group of them."
