Nearly 60 fire fighters tackled the blaze that ripped through a central London restaurant and office block.

Eight fire engines were on scene to battle the fire at Steak & Co restaurant in Haymarket.

London Fire Brigade stated that the restaurant's ventilation system had caught alight and the fire had spread to the first and second floor.

Fire crews from Soho, Lambeth, Islington, West Hampstead, Stoke Newington and Euston fire stations attended the scene.

Traffic was heavy as the road outside the restaurant were cordoned and bus routes were on diversion to avoid the area.

There are no reports of injuries.
