Bayswater hotel fire under control

A fire at a hotel in London's Bayswater that has blazed since this morning is now under control.

A lift shaft, part of the fourth and fifth floors, and part of the roof was damaged in the fire at the Royal Court Apartments on Gloucester Terrace.

A number of people were evacuated before the arrival of the fire brigade, but no injuries were reported.

Station manager Nick Comery, who was at the scene, said: "Firefighters worked hard and did well tackle a challenging and well developed fire. Fifteen people escaped from the building before the crews arrived and thankfully no one was hurt. Our fire investigation team is now working to determine what caused the blaze."

Fire fighters were called at 11.28am this morning to the business, which is owned by RCA Hotels and sits opposite its sister property, the Paddington Hotel.
