A fire left a seventh-floor flat charred by flames in Westminster on Saturday.
Six fire engines and 40 firefighters from Soho, Lambeth, Euston, Chelsea and Dowgate fire stations worked together to put out the blaze in the eight-storey building.
The fire service was called to St James’ Place at 4am and the fire took two hours to get under control.
The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
