The front of the single-storey industrial unit in Tottenham has partially collapsed, but no-one is believed to be injured, she added.

Firefighters tackling the blaze are using jets to protect a 2,000-litre diesel tank and prevent the fire from spreading to neighbouring factory units.

People living near the bakery are being advised to keep windows closed "as a precaution" due to the smoke.
