A woman has died in a fire at a block of flats in north London.

She was rescued from the four-storey building in Daleham Garden, Hampstead, in the early hours but died at the scene.

London Fire Brigade stated that about 20 people managed to escape from the building before crews arrived.

The cause of the fire, which took 60 fire fighters about three hours to get under control, is being investigated. The woman who died has not been named.

Crews in eight fire engines, along with an aerial appliance, attended the scene after the alarm was raised.

London Fire Brigade stated that the fire had badly damaged the ground and first floors of the building, but the second and third floors and the roof were all destroyed.
