Dozens of firefighters are battling a blaze in Hackney, east London, with dramatic pictures showing smoke billowing from a block of flats.

Around 80 firefighters were called the blaze last night.

Fire crews have rescued a woman from the first floor of the block of flats, although no-one has been injured in the inferno.

Firefighters are still fighting the flames this morning, with part of the roof of the building remaining alight. The London Fire Brigade tweeted at 2.21am that the fire was under control, although small pockets of flames had yet to be put out.

In an earlier tweet, the service said: "Firefighters will be on scene at the Hackney fire throughout the night. Part of the roof of the building remains alight.

"Crews led one woman to safety from the first floor and there are no reports of any injuries at this stage."
