A huge fire has “destroyed” a motor repair workshop in north London, as dozens of firefighters rushed to tackle the flames.

Ten fire engines and around 70 firefighters dashed to the blaze at an industrial estate on Willoughby Lane in Tottenham, Haringey.

Video shared on social media showed the building being engulfed by flames.

One unit used as a motor repair workshop was destroyed by fire, the fire service said.

Two men left the building before firefighters arrived and there were no reports of any injuries.

A gas cylinder inside the workshop was removed and cooled to an ambient temperature as some cylinders can explode when exposed to heat.

Firefighters were called at 7.44pm and the fire was under control by 9.15pm.

Crews from Tottenham, Edmonton, Walthamstow and surrounding fire stations attended.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
