A major fire which broke out in Camden Lock Market overnight on Sunday has been brought under control by emergency services. 

Roughly 70 firefighters and a fleet of 10 fire engines were deployed to the scene of the blaze in a building located near to the famous Camden Stables, the central hub of the area. 

Witnesses described how the fire grew at speed amid fears it could spread to nearby restaurants and cause explosions. 

The authorities from the London Fire Brigade worked to contain the fire for roughly three hours, and ambulance services were called to the scene. 

At present, it is not known if there were any injuries in the incident. 

The fire in the market comes just weeks after the tragic blaze at Grenfell Tower in West London, where at least 80 people died.
