A bird with a cigarette set fire to a flat in south London last night. 20 firefighters were called to Landor Road in Stockwell to bring the blaze under control. Nine people escaped the building unharmed.
Investigators eventually found a burnt nest, and realised a bird had picked up a smouldering cigarette and then dropped it.
Fire investigation officer Matt Cullen said:
"When we got up into the roof, we were baffled as there were no obvious ignition sources - no one had been up to there for a long time and there were no electrics that could have sparked a blaze.
"We looked everywhere, but the smoking gun was found when we discovered a partially burnt birds nest. Neighbours told us they often saw birds flying in and out of a hole in the roof.
"We believe that one of the birds picked up a cigarette butt that was still smouldering and dropped it into the nest, causing it to catch fire and set the roof alight."
David Luiz appeared to have his car clamped while posing for a selfie in central London.
Actor Colin Newell spotted the Chelsea star near Charing Cross and asked him to pose for a photo:
But a traffic warden sprung into action and a picture of his 'clamped' car was posted on Twitter.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Colin Newell said:
"I said to him can I have a quick picture... and he forgot about his car. We took the picture and were clowning around for a bit – he’s a bit of a livewire – and when he went back to it there was a dirty great big yellow clamp on his Range Rover.
"Those clampers were fast, like ninjas. It was not a nice thing to happen. He had only left it there for five minutes."
But doubts were cast on its authenticity after Westminster Council told the Standard it stopped clamping vehicles six years ago.
