Fire at London Ambulance Control

A fire overnight at the London Ambulance control centre in Waterloo has forced the service to shift its whole operation to a backup centre in Bow.

The fire in the basement's affected the power to the 999 computers.

Managers say they're only responding to the most serious calls and response times and the number of calls aren't affected.
