A fire has broken out at a North London tower block under a mile away from an estate where thousands were evacuated over flammable cladding. Crews of almost 60 firefighters are battling flames at Waxham House in Camden this evening. The block is minutes away from Chalcots Estate, where 4,000 people were evacuated on Friday.

Shocked residents were ordered to leave their homes for up to three weeks while ‘urgent fire safety works’ were carried out. Roads have been closed outside Waxham House while crews deal with the fire.
