Unhappy Need to extract a metal plug

Hi, While inserting a metal plug in a wall, the screw broke in half and I now have a useless plug which I need to extract. Any ideas on how to do it? the plug and part of the screw are inside the hole. Thx

Welcome to the forums!

What kind of metal plug?

Can you get a hold of the screw with pliers/visegrips? or drill it out?
