A spokeswoman for the London Fire Brigade told Metro.co.uk: ‘We have got a 12 pump fire brigade in progress in the Roman Road area of Bethnal Green.’

The LFB also tweeted that around 80 firefighters were on the scene at Mace Street.

It’s believed the building is still under construction.

Local residents tweeted that they could see the building being engulfed by flames.

Others posted footage and photographs of the building, which was billowing smoke into the air.

It comes after another block of flats in Bethnal Green caught fire at the end of June, and as the capital is still coming to terms with the devastating blaze at Grenfell Tower that killed at least 80 people.
