More than a hundred firefighters have been trying to save a collection of artefacts from a blazing museum.
Firefighters evacuated 30 people from Cuming Museum and Newington library in Walworth, south-east London, after a fire took hold in the roof.
The museum, which was founded in 1906 with the Cuming family's private collection, is home to artefacts from all around the world, including objects from Roman London, Chinese ornaments and African tribal costumes.
It also contains a permanent exhibition on the history of Southwark.
It is unclear how the fire started and no injuries have been reported, a London Fire Brigade spokesman said.
