Dozens of firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a golf clubhouse.

Ten fire engines and 70 firefighters were called to the former Stanmore and Edgware Golf Centre in Brockley Hill shortly before 1am (June 29).

The clubhouse and part of a driving range, situated between Stanmore and Elstree, was alight, but the fire was brought under control by 2.40am.

Crews witnessed flames ripping quickly through the two-storey clubhouse and spreading to the driving range.

London Fire Brigade says there have been no reports of any injuries.

Station Commander Neil Guyett, who was at the scene, said: "On arrival crews were faced with a well-developed fire, rapidly spreading through the building.

"Firefighters worked hard to bring the fire under control.

"There was a large amount of smoke in the area, so local residents and businesses were advised to keep their doors and windows closed.

"The fire is now under control, but crews will be on scene throughout the morning and local road closures remain in place."

The A5 Brockley Hill is closed between the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and Pipers Green Lane.

Stanmore and Edgware Golf Centre is currently vacant after the course closed with immediate effect in October last year.
