BREAKING NEWS: London Fire!!!

Nearly 100 firefighters are tackling a major fire which has engulfed a museum and library in south east London.

 The blaze ripped through a building in Wansey St, Walworth, shortly after 12.30pm.

 London Fire Brigade said 15 fire engines, with 97 firefighters, were at the scene.

 There are currently no indications of how the fire started and no injuries have been reported, a fire brigade spokesman added.

 The building houses Newington Library, a museum of Southwark's history and a one-stop shop for residents to access council services.

 Leader of the council Peter John said: "Whilst our first concern is for the safety of residents and our staff, we are also worried about possible damage to the museum's collection.

 "It does not appear at this time that surrounding buildings or any residential properties have been affected, but we will continue to monitor the situation very closely and continue to assist the emergency services where we can."
