Firefighters rush to the Old Bailey after sounds of 'explosions'

A spokesperson for the London Fire Brigade confirmed to MailOnline they had been called to the Central Criminal Court shortly before 11am.

 

Crews currently on scene are checking out 'multiple buildings' on Warwick Lane.

 

Witnesses said the Old Bailey was evacuated after lights flickered inside.

 

One witness who tweeted video of the incident wrote on X: 'Series of explosions heard from building next to Old Bailey for about 10 minutes before smoke emerges. Many buildings seem to have suffered power cuts.'

 

A BBC journalist at the scene tweeted: 'Black acrid smoke coming from rear of Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey - lights flickered inside before it was evacuated - firefighter says fire in section of building where electrical substation sits.'

 

The LFB has tweeted: 'Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters are responding to an incident involving an electrical substation on Warwick Lane, near the rear of the Old Bailey.

 

 

A Times reporter quoted Judge Mark Lucraft, the most senior judge based at the Old Bailey, as saying it was 'too early' to know when cases would be able to resume following the building's evacuation.

 

Firefighters are working with UK Power Networks to make the scene safe and bring the fire under control.

 

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
