Major fire rips through luxury spa hotel Richmond London - compiled clips

A raging blaze ripped through a luxury spa hotel in Richmond south west London on April 30 which saw more than 70 firefighters attended.

Half of the roof of the building had caught fire causing thick smoke to billow out over the surrounding area.

Station Manager Mike Cotton, who was at the scene, said: "Crews are working hard in challenging conditions to bring the fire under control.

He continued: "The fire is in an annexe building and has been producing a lot of smoke. We would urge residents and businesses in the immediate area to keep windows and doors closed while we continue to tackle the fire."

No one is believed to have been injured.

Footage shows fire trucks outside the hotel while smoke pours out across the road.

As the film continues into night the filmer captures firefighters continuing to work with the smoke still thick in the air. After many hours of fighting the blaze the firefighters are filmed resting next to a tree.
