North London pavement bursts into flames

Fifty people had to be moved from a shopping street in north London after a pavement burst into flames.

The fire, outside a supermarket in Caledonian Road, Islington, was apparently caused by an electrical fault under a manhole cover.

Nobody was injured. The BBC's Marc Ashdown reports.
