A man has been rescued by firefighters from a blazing flat in Willesden.

Four fire engines and 20 crew were called to the block of flats in Harlesden Road at 9.20am this morning.

Part of a five-room property on the sixth floor was alight, said the London Fire Bridge.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus entered the property and rescued a man who has since been taken to a north London hospital.

Fire crews from Willesden, Park Royal, Wembley and North Kensington fire stations attended the scene.
