Major fire at London hospital

A major fire has broken out at one of London's top cancer hospitals. The fire broke out at the Royal Marsden Hospital in the Fulham Road in West London at around 13:25 GMT. The incident has already resulted in the evacuation of many patients but there are no reported injuries. Roads in the area have been closed causing local traffic chaos. The fire will be devastating to the NHS with the hospital treating over 40,000 patients every year. Up to 75 firefighters and 15 fire appliances are at the scene. BBC News 24 brought Live pictures to viewers at 14:15 GMT followed some 15 minutes later by Sky News.
