Two adults and a baby had a lucky escape from a burning building.

The three left a shop with flats above in Seven Sisters Road, Tottenham, after a fire broke out at around 8.30am on Wednesday, July 11.

Part of the ground floor was damaged by the blaze which took 21 firefighters 45 minutes to get under control.

Nine residents were evacuated from an adjacent building by the crews from Tottenham, Stoke Newington and Holloway fire stations.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
