Three in hospital after London house fire

Three men have been taken to hospital suffering cuts, burns and the effects of smoke inhalation after a fire at a block of derelict shops and flats in south London.

Around 30 firefighters were called to the Manor Place in Lambeth just after 04:00 BST.

London fire Brigade said 10 people left the premises before they arrived.

A spokesman said officers were still at the scene and had yet to determine if the buildings were now empty.
