Around 20 firefighters tackled a blaze in a basement office in Marylebone in the early hours of this morning.

The fire broke out shortly before 4.30am in Robert Adam Street, off Baker Street, in an office below a shop, with flats above.

Crews spent nearly two-and-a-half hours at the scene and contained the fire to part of the basement, and investigations suggest the cause was accidental.
