Around 20 fire engines and more than 120 crew fought a large fire at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London yesterday.

The blaze at the five-star, 181-bedroom hotel broke out at around 3.30pm.

A spokesperson for the hotel said the cause of the fire is not yet known – but according to eyewitness reports, it is believed to have started either on the roof or one of the top floors.

According to a spokesperson for the London Ambulance Service, there were no reports of any injuries an a total of 36 hotel guests and 250 members of hotel staff were evacuated.

The hotel was in the final stages of a multi-million pound redevelopment.

Last year, The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group commissioned interior designer Joyce Wang to lead the multi-million-pound restoration.

The property was struck by a major fire in 1899 that damaged the top three floors and destroyed part of the roof. Following a redevelopment, it reopened in 1902 as the Hyde Park Hotel.
