Green Lanes fire

A fire at a builder's warehouse in Green Lanes caused long tailbacks in Highbury today.

The blaze broke out at around 9.30 this morning at a welding shop. Firefighters have spent the day bringing it under control.

A number of houses had to be evacuated because of fears of a gas explosion. Residents have now returned to their homes. Traffic is still being diverted between Albion Road and Aden Grove. Expect long delays.
