Fire fighters believe a fire that tore through a café in Willesden was sparked by burning shisha coals.

The ground floor of a coffee shop on Willesden High Road was left partially destroyed and littered with ash after more than 25 fighters spent just an hour trying to save the premises close to Willesden bus garage last week.

London Fire Brigade think the blaze was started by careless disposal of burning shisha charcoals among piles of rubbish in the rear yard of the premises.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
