UPDATED: Fire in North Cheam

London Fire Brigade has tackled a large fire in garages behind Evans Autos on London Road, North Cheam. 

Six fire engines and around 30 firefighters from New Malden, Wimbledon, Surbiton, Mitcham and Norbury fire stations were called to the blaze which affected nine garages behind the Evans Autos car dealership.

Fears that gas cylinders may have been involved in the fire led to around 60 residents living in nearby flats being evacuated from their homes as a precaution.

One person is believed to have been taken to St Helier hospital after being injured in the blaze.

The fire was brought under control at 17.15.
