More than 70 firefighters are battling a huge blaze at Camden Lock Market.

Firefighters said 10 fire engines are at the scene of the fire that broke out in the early hours of Monday.

One witness tweeted: “On a night bus I just passed the start of a big fire in Camden, now at Euston I’ve seen lots of ambulances head north.”

Another said: “Just drove past Camden market and there’s a huge fire on top a building, close to the Loch Bridge! Crazy, crazy scenes.”

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called on Monday at 12.10am to Camden Lock Market to reports of a fire. 

“London Fire Brigade were already at the scene when officers arrived. It is unknown at this stage if any persons are injured, we await update.”
