A fire engine has crashed into a building in London's Canary Wharf, leaving three members of its crew injured.

The emergency vehicle from Poplar was travelling towards reports of a fire on Churchill Place in Canary Wharf. It was subsequently found to be a false alarm.

London Fire Brigade said two firefighters were taken to hospital while one was treated at the scene.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is under way, the brigade said.

Witness Daniel Gatty said the crash happened at about 14:30 GMT and it looked as though the vehicle was turning a corner when it hit the building.
