A flat above a shop has been completely destroyed in a blaze.

The London Fire Brigade (LFB) was called to Craven Park Road in Harlesden just after 8am this morning (September 7).

The fire brigade has not yet said whether anybody was hurt in the fire.

A flat, located above a shop on the first floor of a mid-terraced building, was destroyed.

Pictures from the scene showed a large emergency services cordon in place along the street, as well as charred window frames above a shop.

It took fire crews from Willesden, North Kensington, Acton and Wembley more than two hours to extinguish the blaze.

The fire was under control just after 10.30am as four fire engines and 25 firefighters attended the scene.

A LFB spokesperson said that the cause of the fire is now under investigation.

Craven Park Road has been closed while emergency services work at the scene, forcing the diversion of bus routes 18, 206 and 260.
