Warehouse fire brought under control in north London

London Fire Brigade says a massive blaze in the north of the capital, is now under control - but despite this, a constant stream of emergency vehicles are arriving to assist.

Around 70 firefighters are at the two storey warehouse on North Circular Road in Neasden.

The whole of the building has been damaged by fire.

Station Manager Robbie Robertson said:

"Firefighters have worked extremely hard overnight to prevent the fire spreading to an adjacent building. The fire is under control however, fire crews continue to deal with pockets of fire inside the warehouse and at this time the A406 is closed in both directions between Staples Corner and Neasden Lane.

"Seventeen people have been evacuated from neighbouring properties as a precaution and we'd ask residents to keep their doors and windows closed."

The Brigade was called at 2:38 am and the fire was under control at 6:22 am - crews from Willesden and surrounding fire stations are at the scene.

The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.

Drivers are facing major delays in the area.
