    Twelve fire engines and 60 firefighters are attending the fire, which broke out in a building in Dean Street at around 14:00.

    Part of the basement of the four storey building is alight. The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.

    A spokesman for London Fire Brigade says 75% of the building has been destroyed.

    Two ambulances have been seen inside the cordon, but it's not known how many people are injured.

    Eyewitness Kayleigh Dugdale told Sky News that every building along Dean Street had been evacuated.

    Nino Ripani, manager of nearby restaurant Signor Zilli's, said: "It's really shocking, it's something that you don't see every day."

    "It's really getting to serious stuff now, we can see the black bits coming out."

    Musician David McAlmont was among the crowd stood at the edge of the cordon.

    "I saw the smoke for St Martin's Lane and followed it all the way here. It was only then that I realised what was happening."
