Four fire engines and 21 firefighters and officers have tackled a fire at ITV Studios on London’s Southbank this morning.

Part of an IT post production room on the first floor was damaged by fire. Around 50 people evacuated the building before the Brigade arrived. The fire meant that Good Morning Britain was taken off air.

Station Manager Rod Vitalis said:

"Firefighters did extremely well to contain the fire to an IT post production room on the first floor. Thankfully no one was injured and 50 people evacuated safely."

The Brigade was called at 0657 and the fire was under control by 0843. Fire crews from Lambeth, Dowgate and Soho fire stations were at the scene. The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical.
