A young girl has been treated for minor injuries after part of a roof collapsed at an Auckland cinema this morning.

About 16 square metres of roofing tiles and air conditioning equipment fell about four metres onto a seating area in the foyer of Event Cinemas in Newmarket.

Police, fire and ambulance all attended.

An ambulance spokesperson said one person received minor injuries, and cinema staff say a young girl was treated by ambulance staff for minor scratches.

Fire Service northern communications confirmed four trucks, a specialist rescue unit and a helicopter were sent to the scene.

However as it was a "minor roof collapse", only two trucks have remained on the scene to secure the area, the Fire Service said.
